 About the Book 

Mr. Richey first became interested in politics in 1960 during the Kennedy-Nixon presidential contest, the first for which he was old enough to vote. Since then he has both been an avid reader and follower of politics. Convinced 1. Pascal laid it downMoreMr. Richey first became interested in politics in 1960 during the Kennedy-Nixon presidential contest, the first for which he was old enough to vote. Since then he has both been an avid reader and follower of politics. Convinced 1. Pascal laid it down as a fact that if all men knew what others say of them, there would not be four friends in the world. I believe he was much too generous in settling on the number four. 2. It is a sad but true statement about current American politics that there exist some male politicians who are ever so good with womens issues, doing things FOR women in groups in order that they may do things TO women as individuals. 3. The most pernicious fraud against the culture of the mind ever perpetrated in America is the dictum that the hallmark of intellectual maturity consists in the ability to tolerate ambiguity. 4. Every time you make a decision, you make a judgment about the proper course of action. But oh gosh: we mustnt be judgmental, must we? Yes, we must. Judge, and stand ready to be judged. 5. Those who profess a problem with your linear thinking dont really have a problem with thinking being linear, but with thinking being yours.
