A Quote by Linda and Morris Tannehill on fear, liberty, excuse, leader, leadership, and responsibility

People who fear responsibility find it easier to call for leaders, even when those leaders may become tyrants, than to accept the risk and effort of looking for solutions to the problems that beset them.

A Quote by Linda and Morris Tannehill on sacrifice and altruism

Sacrifice is held to be among the greatest of virtues, simply because the beneficiaries of the sacrifice are others and the loser is self.

A Quote by Linda and Morris Tannehill on altruism, sacrifice, life, and contradiction

Altruism is an inverted morality, a "morality" of death. It teaches man that his interests are opposed to the interests of everyone else and that the only "moral" thing he can do is to sacrifice his interests. This means that whatever is practical and beneficial for a man is "immoral," and conversely, that whatever is "moral" for him is impractical and destructive of his values.

A Quote by Linda and Morris Tannehill on government, paradox, and violence

The contradiction of hiring an agency of institutionalized violence to protect us from violence is even more foolhardy than buying a cat to protect one's parakeet.
