Although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... in which I have spoken of so many important things done by Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, To the superiority of their women.

How Great Leaders Inspire Action

This little mini-lecture by Simon Sanek is a great way of visualizing trends and how things change. You could apply what this guy says to all sorts of things.

Let's hope the renewed interest in the Constitution and the rule of law is getting a hard core following, causing the rest of the country to join us.
