Winston Churchill failed sixth grade. He was subsequently defeated in every election for public office until he became Prime Minister at the age of 62.

Never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never – in nothing, great or small, large or petty never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense.
Never, Never, Never, Never give up

The West is slowly but surely turning into the phobic-state, where everything and anything which one does not like about another can be taken as a crime or a mental disorder or something quivalent, as long as one is in a state of authority to do so. This is a pretty sad state of affairs to come to.

In the sprawling slum of Haiti’s CitÃ© Soleil, Placide Simone, 29, offered one of her five offspring to a stranger. “Take one,” she said, cradling a listless baby and motioning toward four rail-thin toddlers, none of whom had eaten that day. “You pick. Just feed them.”
Is this what we have been forced into?
