"We have an understandable preference for tales of conversion over stories of scorpion squeezing: we want oppressed people to free themselves—we want the Israelites to have crossed the Red Sea without help from empathetic Egyptians."
- An excellent piece by Adam Gopnik on slavery, big government and the need to restore agency to altruism in the narrative of American identity: http://nyr.kr/1ewP2XJ (via The New Yorker)

"I probably shouldn’t have taken things so seriously.""Like what?""Marriage.""In what way?""I think I changed too much when I got married. I tried to fit the role too much.

Probably."

"You should kiss the ground you walk on if you were born in this country— take it from an old man who once had to wear the Star of David on his shirt. There’s a safety to living in such a diverse place. It’s much more difficult to brainwash a population that is composed of so many different nationalities and so many different viewpoints."
