Thursday Short Cuts

Felix E. Schelling observed, "True education makes for inequality ... the measure of the progress of the world."

Insight: “True education makes for inequality; the inequality of individuality, the inequality of success, the glorious inequality of talent, of genius; for inequality, not mediocrity, individual superiority, not standardization, is the measure of the progress of the world.” —Felix E. Schelling (1858-1945)

Observations: “Even if Republicans find a way to give Obamacare a haircut … it will more closely resemble past free-market corrections of liberalism’s excesses than a serious constitutional conservative challenge to liberalism. That doesn’t bode well for the Tea Party project of rolling back major liberal initiatives. The point of voting Republican will remain to make the inexorable growth of the welfare state as slow and painful as possible, a political posture that may be attractive to neither libertarian-leaning conservatives nor the populists drawn to Trump in the last presidential election. The Tea Party came to repeal and replace Obamacare. They ended up getting repealed and replaced themselves.” —Washington Examiner’s W. James Antle III

She’d fit right it: “Lisa Murkowski would be welcomed as a Moderate Democrat!! What has Trump ever done for Alaska?” —Howard Dean

Race bait: “After eight years of working really hard for this country, there are still people who won’t see me for what I am because of my skin color.” —Michelle Obama

Non Compos Mentis: “Children do not belong to their parents. … We need to remind ourselves that parents do not have rights regarding their children, they only have duties, the principal duty being to act in their children’s best interests.” —University College London professor Ian Kennedy

Good question: “Theodore Roosevelt offered Americans a ‘Square Deal.’ His fifth cousin, Franklin D. Roosevelt, gave us ‘The New Deal.’ Modern Democrats, who have lost election after election, are now offering the country ‘A Better Deal.’ … The [New York] Times story called the Democrats’ announcement ‘the battle cry of a party in the wilderness.’ Question: If a Democrat speaks in the wilderness, will anyone hear?” —Cal Thomas
