Today, words. Tomorrow, sticks and stones. And the day after that?
Let the massacres remind us to turn down our political volume and venom.
The most intense hatreds are not between political parties but within them.
While sticks and stones break bones, words can never hurt? Manifestly untrue. Politics everywhere are holistic, interconnected, and the rhetoric of right or left can produce toxic atmospheres in which lunacy thrives.
I’m an egg hatcher, not a chicken counter.
There is a nation for a continent, and a continent for a nation.
It is the duty of the State to educate, and the right of the people to demand education.
I say further that our system of education should be unsectarian.
Creating a nation requires the will of the people!
A State which has universal suffrage and a wide extension of the jury franchise, must qualify the people by education to rightly exercise the great powers with which they are invested.
