A Decent Society

     "What is a decent society?  A decent society is one whose institutions do not humiliate people.  A civilized society is one whose members do not humiliate one another."
                                                                      Avishai Margalit, A Decent Society

     As self-appointed exemplars of civilization at its best, we in the United States, though there are many nations worse than ours,  have a long way to go before we can declare with honest self-awareness that we are a decent and civilized people.

  4. This is a flagrant miscarriage of justice here in finding Doctor Ona Colasante guilty,the jury selected in finding the doctor guilty was no doubt inept,unqualified and biased and certainly not a jury of her peers,the Federal Government should be ashamed in their reckless prosecution of Doctor Colasante,she should win an appeal and all charges dropped,I hope a smarter more fair judges finds her innocent,certainly she was railroaded and the juries finding of her guilt were a travesty of justice,Robert Castoro
