“A long habit of not thinking a thing wrong, gives it a superficial appearance of being right, and raises at first a formidable outcry in defense of custom.”

Politics. Economics. Faith. Parenting. Law. Justice. Equality. Love.
What area does this not apply to? I pondered this for quite a while this morning. How much different would my life be, or our world be, if people had simply lived according to Paine’s maxim over the last fifty or so years?
