Impartiality, Political Stances, and the Human Condition

Thoughts for the day:

"Impartiality is a pompous name for indifference, which is an elegant name for ignorance."
(The Speaker (December 15, 1900))

"The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of the Conservatives is to prevent the mistakes from being corrected." (- Illustrated London News (ILN), (April 19, 1924))

G. K. Chesterton, via The American Chesterton Society)
Remember: "Impartial" isn't the same as "apathetic" and the Lemming is apathetic only in the sense that I don't care about the 'right' things. (September 9, 2007
