"Extremism in defense of liberty is no vice. Moderation in pursuit of justice is no virtue."
These deathless lines are generally credited to Barry Goldwater, but he didn't write them. Karl Hess, Goldwater's lovable anarchist speechwriter, put them in the Arizona senator's Republican convention acceptance speech. "I would remind you that extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice!" Goldwater actually said, in a slightly less pithy formulation. "And let me remind you also that moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue!" It's a rousing sentiment, however it's phrased.

How to wage a peaceful revolution to restore rule of law, ethics, and morality to the nation
With a title that satirically mocks Hillary Clinton, this book details how our executive, legislative, and judicial branches of government have become thoroughly corrupt and failed the citizenry. This work is a call to arms during these times of crises, when government corruption has hit a “cancerous state.” The overriding message is that Americans should turn off cable news, get up off of the couch, and join the second American Revolution to restore the greatness of our nation in these perilous times.
