Notable Quote: Harvey Mansfield – On Goodness and Justice

by Steve MacDonald

Harvey Mansfield - Token Conservative at Harvard University“…goodness or justice in our country is not merely the transfer of resources to the poor and vulnerable. We have to take measures to teach the poor and vulnerable to become a little more independent and to prize independence, and not just live for a government check. That means self-government within each self, and where are you going to get that except with morality, responsibility and religion?”
