    It is bad luck for world history that of all people the Russians adopted Communism, because they are totally unfit for it.
    Friedrich Dürrenmatt (1921–1990)

    If not us, who? If not now, when?
    —Slogan by Czech university students in Prague, November 1989. quoted in Observer (London, Nov. 26, 1989)

    Wherever the State touches the personal life of the infant, the child, the youth, or the aged, helpless, defective in mind, body or moral nature, there the State enters “woman’s peculiar sphere,” her sphere of motherly succor and training, her sphere of sympathetic and self-sacrificing ministration to individual lives.
    Anna Garlin Spencer (1851–1931)
