"...the remedy is not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion." Mr. Jefferson was living in an age when the possibility of "informing their discretion" remained a distinct possibility. He, in his wildest dreams, never envisioned an electorate for whom issues of abortion or homosexuality were debatable matters, much less matters of civic urgency. These things are the kinds of issues a culture in its death throes wrestle with.
