Thought for the day

From the Merton Institute.  How timely is this quote as we all contemplate how best to dig out of this financial debacle that threatens us.

We never see the one truth that would help us begin to solve our ethical and political problems: that we are all more or less wrong, that we are all at fault, all limited and obstructed by our mixed motives, our self-deception, our greed, our self-righteousness and our tendency to aggressivity and hypocrisy.
