A Thought about Character

"Nothing is more certain than that a general profligacy and corruption of manners make a people ripe for destruction. A good form of government may hold the rotten materials together for some time, but beyond a certain pitch, even the best constitution will be ineffectual, and slavery must ensue."

~ John Witherspoon, The Dominion of Providence Over the Passions of Men (1776"
