First Principles: Good Morals Are the Only True Support of Good Government

“For avoiding the extremes of despotism or anarchy… the only ground of hope must be on the morals of the people.  I believe that religion is the only solid base of morals and that morals are the only possible support of free governments.  Therefore education should teach the precepts of religion and the duties of man towards God.” –  Gouverneur Morris, Signer of the United States Constitution
