Confucius Analect of the Week, March 25, 2011

“Great Man is conscious only of justice; Petty Man, only of self-interest.”  (James R. Ware, Chapter IV, Verse 16)

This analect pretty much describes the political classes of elected officials, appointed officials, lobbyists (former officials) and their advisers.  I guess we get the government we deserve.  Where is George Washington when we need him?
