Wisdom

“Wisdom resides less in the means than in affirmation of ends.  If there is the will to attain the end, the means will be found.  If the end is perfidious, no means can have in itself any inherent virtue capable of preventing the perversion of justice.

“Against this, it may be observed that certain systems, and certain mechanisms of means, have been purposely invented and set working in order to mislead the public, and to keep them ignorant of the facts of history and of the best means of creating and maintaining social justice.  The ideological and propagandist battle should be directed against this obscurantism.”

– AMERICA AND THE SECOND WORLD WAR, 1944
