Seamanship Quotation

“In political activity, then, men sail a boundless and bottomless sea; there is neither harbour for shelter nor floor for anchorage, neither starting-place nor appointed destination.”

Trying out a bigger union on San Francisco

I’m off for San Francisco.
I’ve been invited to speak to the Commonwealth Club of California. Monday evening, for the first time in front of a live audience, I’ll present my ideas on our unnecessary border.
San Francisco isn’t the capital of the-art-of-the-possible. But, it’s still hospitable to dangerous ideas. Looking forward to finding out what they think.
Hope to post my remarks on this site next week.
