"No people will tamely surrender their Liberties, nor can any be easily subdued, when knowledge is diffused and Virtue is preserved. On the Contrary, when People are universally ignorant, and debauched in their Manners, they will sink under their own weight without the Aid of foreign Invaders." --Samuel Adams

USAID
Do you get the impression from the media that all the United States is doing in the world is bad? This web site chronicles the good we're doing.

Government Information Awareness
This is a website which offers and collects information on the government. "Modeled on recent government programs designed to consolidate information on individuals into massive databases, our system does the opposite, allowing you to scrutinize those in government. Citizens are able to explore data, track events, find patterns, and build risk profiles, all in an effort to encourage and motivate action. We like to think of it as a Citizen’s Intelligence Agency, giving people similar tools and technologies to those held by their government."

My First Day at UCLA
by Garin K. Hovannisian
...Dressed neatly with a feigned confidence, signs of freshness that any thinking person could discern, I headed toward my first class. The professor of my “Introduction to Western Civilization” class indulged our group with the timeless flavor of Greek philosophy, quoting a Theban writer in his definition of man: “What is a man? What is he not? Man is what a shadow would dream to be.” This sent chills down my spine....
