I’ve been thinking this one over for awhile.  The more I think about it, the more true it strikes me.  It’s not perfectly reflective of my views on politics, but I think that it comes as close as an unnuanced, two-line quote can:

“Extremism in defense of liberty is no vice, and moderation in pursuit of justice is no virtue.”

Then again, I’m kind of on-principle opposed to any brief summation of political or social views.  For as much as I love quotes and pithy bon mots, I think that too often in politics they get in the way of meaningful discussion.

Of course, I’m interested, as always, at my readers’ thoughts on the matter.  Let me know what you think in the comments.
