"When I have applied my mind to Politics so that I might examine what belongs to Politics with the same freedom of mind as we use for Mathematics, I have taken my best pains not to laugh at the actions of mankind, not to groan over them,not to be angry with them, but to understand them."
BARUCH SPINOZA, from his "Tractatus Politicus" (c. 1675)
