“Good government, if it comes, will emerge out of a heightened sense of the ways citizens are linked and interdependent; it will draw upon new recognitions of community and the ways we are the same, not different; it will gain strength when people talk more of the common good as a matter of public morality and of obligations of all people to cooperate as well as compete.”
– Eric Freyfogle
