Education Does Not Necessarily Lead to Wisdom

human dignity cannot be taken away by the government. Slaves did not lose their dignity (any more than they lost their humanity) because the government allowed them to be enslaved. Those held in internment camps did not lose their dignity because the government confined them. And those denied governmental benefits certainly do not lose their dignity because the government denies them those benefits. The government cannot bestow dignity, and it cannot take it away.

Clarence Thomas

What in the hell does this crap have to do with treating people fairly under the law, and this from a man who left the shores of dignity for some weird island of thought where governments of, by and for the people don’t have to give a damn about 99.9 % of the people, a supposedly well educated man who cannot see the injustice in inhumanity. Who the hell gives a damn about dignity if nobody is looking out for each other. I say to hell with dignity, give me compassion and empathy and justice instead.
