Avowed beliefs of politicians and political parties are often subject to the expediencies of the moment and the road to programmatic hell is well paved, a beautiful boulevard of good intentions. Even the most astute of scholars has a difficult time discerning how policies were formulated and put into effect.

Yet human societies seem to always stumble upward toward a more sublime and humane ordering of their domestic relations. Learn More
