pubblicato 14 mag 2010, 02:51 da Ruben Villa   [ aggiornato in data 14 mag 2010, 02:56 ]

Begets subservience and venality, suffocates the germ of virtue, and prepares fit tools for the design of ambition.
 
Thomas Jefferson (Politician, scientist and architect USA, Virginia 1782. Excerpt from his notes)

Independence

pubblicato 14 mag 2010, 02:35 da Ruben Villa   [ aggiornato in data 19 mar 2012, 09:14 ]

An absence of being dependent on another, an essential character of being. The citizen wants to be independent, so he can decide, on good public policy: without fear of the consequences from his dependence.
 
Lawrence Lessig (Professor of Law at Harvard. Conference about "Corruption". Stanford 2008, San Francisco; USA)
