Progressive political junkie.
SOME OF MY FAVORITE QUOTES:
"Patriotism is supporting your country all the time, and your government when it deserves it."
"The human soul has still greater need of the ideal than of the real. It is by the real that we exist; it is by the ideal that we live."
"Those who won our independence... valued liberty as an end and as a means. They believed liberty to be the secret of happiness and courage to be the secret of liberty."
—Louis D. Brandeis
"Every kind of service necessary to the public good becomes honorable by being necessary."
"A patriot must always be ready to defend his country against his government."
"All men are prepared to accomplish the incredible if their ideals are threatened."
"I love America more than any other country in this world, and, exactly for this reason, I insist on the right to criticize her perpetually."
—James Arthur Baldwin
"It is a tragic mix-up when the United States spends $500,000 for every enemy soldier killed, and only $53 annually on the victims of poverty."
—Martin Luther King, Jr.
ABOUT MY NOM DE PLUME, NOETICAL:
For those of you wondering why I chose "Noetical" as my pen (or screen as it were) name, it is because "noetical" is one of my favorite words. In case anyone is interested, I have defined it below:
Noetic: No*et”ic (n-tk); also, Noetical: No*et”ic*al (n-t-kl)
- Of or pertaining to the mind.
- Originating in or apprehended by the reason.
- Of or relating to, originating in, or apprehended by the intellect.; intellectual
- Of or associated with or requiring the use of the mind; “intellectual problems”; “the triumph of the rational over the animal side of man.”
