Folly's Antidote

A nation informed by a vivid understanding of the ironies of history is best equipped to manage the tragic temptations of military power. Let us not bully our way through life, but let a growing sensitivity to history temper and civilize our use of power.

-- Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr., "Folly's Antidote" New York Times, January 1, 2007
