As the philosopher Edmund Burke wrote: "[Society is] a partnership not only between those who are living, but between those who are living, those who are dead, and those who are to be born." Society is not, as it has become, a game of political horse-trading between the ruling party and the opposition which tries to court capricious swing voters.
