OLS Quote of the Week: Isabel Patterson

For the next seven days, the featured quote here at On Liberty Street will be:
"Whoever is fortunate enough to be an American citizen came into the greatest inheritance man has ever enjoyed. He has had the benefit of every heroic and intellectual effort men have made for many thousands of years, realized at last. If Americans should now turn back, submit again to slavery, it would be a betrayal so base the human race might better perish."                 --- Isabel Paterson (The God of the Machine, 1943)
