“People are not better off when they are given maximum personal freedom to do what they want. They’re better off when they are enshrouded in commitments that transcend personal choice—commitments to family, God, craft and country.” (David Brooks, “The Age of Possibility,” New York Times, Nov. 16, 2012, A35, nytimes.com/2012/11/16/opinion/brooks-the-age-of-possibility.html)
