Writes Butler Shaffer:
It has been a few years since I presented my first year students with my election exercise on the first day of class. I have two candidates, "A" and "B." Without naming either of them, I describe their programs, ideas, practices, etc. Candidate "A" - I tell them after they have voted - is a composite of the "founding fathers" (Sam Adams, Jefferson, John Hancock, Tom Paine, etc.), while candidate "B" is Hitler.
The most destructive force in the world is ignorance.
