Each new generation born is in effect an invasion of civilization by little barbarians, who must be civilized before it is too late.

I really believe, based on his work and merits, that he is being ironic in the first quote that you posted. He is pro affirmative action and a self designated Marxist.

What does his criticism of a current president's plan of action in relation to the ideas of former presidents and their interpretations have to do with him being ironic?

Many of the trends, problems and disasters of our time are a legacy of that era. We can only imagine how many future generations will be paying the price

Okay,

It seems the quote you posted was a context of one of his favorite quotations:

Civilization is not inherited; it has to be learned and earned by each generation anew; if the transmission should be interrupted for one century, civilization would die, and we should be savages again.

--Will and Ariel Durant


I was wrong. I had the wrong train of thought.

great quote page. i had to go back to read all of it. Love to see some Ayn Rand and was cheered by seeing George Carlin. Wish he lived to see the revolution. Loved the Bobby Fischer quotes, only second (and third and fourth...) time to see him quoted.

The increased concentration among banks seems to have the effect of making financial crises less likely, but when they happen they are more global in scale and hit us very hard. We have moved from a diversified ecology of small banks, with varied lending policies, to a more homogeneous framework of firms that all resemble one another. True, we now have fewer failures, but when they occur

I don't know buddy. Many of the things you said are too unreal. Nothing wrong with that but doing real things will make one more stable. Like how can one create a better life for themselves and others.

I guess you want to be a monk or something like that. That is too high for me. I want to stand with the people and do what we can and make everyone life a little bit better. Enjoy the pain, sadness, disappointment.

No, I am tied to the world because of some decisions I made in the past. At this point in my life I have been pushed into the public eye and am a steady figure in my community. I realized that people are doing the best that they can from their level of awareness.

I will enjoy the success, wisdom, and love that all humans possess inherently. I have always stood by the people, but I understand that I change myself to change the world.
