Whenever people open fortune cookies, they always expect to find a small piece of paper inside that has words of wisdom written on it. Last week, I opened a fortune cookie and much to my surprise, there were words of political wisdom written on the slip: "The will of the people is the best law."
The next day, I showed my colleagues the fortune and we briefly discussed how hard it is to determine what the will of the people actually is. Then, after some "serious" collaboration, we came up with a new idea: Political Science Fortune Cookies. So we’re looking for some good ideas for phrases that should be included in a set of Political Science Fortune Cookies. Any suggestions???
I will start with two suggestions:
"If we do not believe in freedom of expression for those we despise we do not believe in it at all." – Noam Chomsky
"Type I Error: A generous consolation prize from the data gods just for trying." – Julie VanDusky
