Core Truths

I spent the summer as a judicial intern in the Daniel Patrick Moynihan United States Courthouse. I really couldn't have had a better time, and I now feel much more confident that I can competently approach problems in a lawyerly manner.

As I wind up my summer at the Court, I find a quote attributed to Senator Moynihan rolling around in my mind:

The central conservative truth is that it is culture, not politics, that determines the success of a society.

The central liberal truth is that politics can change a culture and save it from itself.
