... we now embark only upon
the most sacred of missions,
guided by our principles
of equity, and purity of thought,
those of benighted times,
mired in mistakenness and
unable to see their own faults,
erected monuments that we
pass now with indulgent smiles,
confident that
future generations will not
do so to us, or perhaps,
indifferent to whether or not they do,
as we are unable to imagine
any moral force greater than...
well, us
