On this July 4th, consider the wisdom of a founding father

The wise know their weakness too well to assume infallibility; and he who knows most, knows best how little he knows.

-Thomas Jefferson

Jefferson's admonition is as apt today as it was in 1776.  Those who are certain that their values and their vision for the future should be thrust upon us all--without consideration and deliberation--are neither wise nor enlightened.
