    "Of all races in an advanced stage of civilization, the American is the least accessible to long views... Always and everywhere in a hurry to get rich, he does not give a thought to remote consequences; he sees only present advantages... He does not remember, he does not feel, he lives in a materialist dream."
    —Moiseide Ostrogorski (1902, 302-303)

    Our hubris.

    It's past time to question our belief systems, America.

    "ingratiation and access . . . are not corruption." -- Justice Kennedy (Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, 2010)
