The debt owed is far greater and more demanding than that, having done wrong, you should endure your sentence. The debt is owed by all citizens. The true debt owed is this: to love and to improve the civilization into which you are born; to defend and sustain the common peace; to preserve the Republic and its freedoms; to suppress rather than to become the unjust; and to uphold the weak.

Grim, Dulce et Decorum (2005).

I always enjoy reading through the back catalog at Grim’s Hall.  I don’t agree with everything, even the fraction that I hope I understand, but I always have to think about why. Such places give me some hope for intelligence discourse in the new media.
