    Every political system is an accumulation of habits, customs, prejudices, and principles that have survived a long process of trial and error and of ceaseless response to changing circumstances.

    Edward C. Banfield (b. 1916)

    Almanacked, their names live; they
    Have slipped their names, and stand at ease,
    Or gallop for what must be joy,
