Amid the pervasive sights and sounds of fireworks over the next few days (or weeks), let’s also welcome the month of July with some related commentary about the virtues of democracy…..
“Conservation is to a democratic government by free men as the roots of a tree are to its leaves. We must be willing to wisely nurture and use our resources if we are going to keep visible the inner strengths of democracy…. We take a positive position– conservation means we have faith that our way of life will go on and we are surely building for those who we know will follow.”
Senator Clinton Anderson of New Mexico
