Quote of the Day (Edmund Burke, on Arguing Against Abuses ‘From Your Own Country’)

“[I]t is an arduous thing to plead against abuses of a power which originates from your own country, and affects those whom we are used to consider as strangers.”—Anglo-Irish statesman and father of conservatism Edmund Burke (1729-1797), “Speech on Mr. Fox's East India Bill,” December 1, 1783, from Selected Works of Edmund Burke
