Aleister Crowley on Scott Walker: “It is the mark of the mind untrained to take its own processes as valid for all men, and its own judgments for absolute truth*.”

OK, so he didn't have Walker on his mind when he wrote this, but it still works for me.

Excerpt:    Walker is doing everything potential presidential contenders do to test the waters more than two years out from Election Day. He has spent time in the crucial early battlegrounds -- New Hampshire and especially neighboring Iowa -- and visited a dozen other states: Alabama, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Kentucky, Nevada, New York, Texas and Tennessee. Sometimes he travels to raise money; other times he's cashing in political IOUs; on other occasions he goes because states want to hear how he took on Wisconsin's public employee unions.
