"The mind is a compact, multiply connected thought mass with internal connections of the most intimate kind. It grows continuously as new thought masses enter it, and this is the means by which it continues to develop."

Bernhard Riemann On Psychology and Metaphysics ca. 1860

John Quincy Adams' Prophetic Speech that We Violate at Our Nation's Peril

"She [America] well knows that by once enlisting under other banners than her own, were they even the banners of foreign independence, she would involve herself beyond the power of extrication, in all the wars of interest and intrigue, of individual avarice, envy, and ambition, which assume the colors and usurp the standard of freedom."

These words delivered by Adams as Secretary of State in 1821 to Congress speak for themselves to anyone left with a scintilla of integrity and perspicacity in this God forsaken land.
