Masterful quotes

How appropriate are these quotes from Thomas Mann to our world today?
(Nobel prize winner and author who escaped Germany and became an American Citizen)

Tolerance is a crime when applied to evil.
-- Thomas Mann
How often do we hear evil scream for tolerance and demand acceptance?

Peoples behavior makes sense if you think about it in terms of their goals, needs, and motives.
-- Thomas Mann
People claim that Obama's behavior doesn't make any sense, YES IT DOES when you consider that he is making a transformational change to our Constitutional Republic!

War is only a cowardly escape from the problems of peace.
-- Thomas Mann
Enough said!

It is a strange fact that freedom and equality, the two basic ideas of democracy, are to some extent contradictory.
Logically considered, freedom and equality are mutually exclusive, just as society and the individual are mutually exclusive.
-- Thomas Mann
Yes, because democracy clamors for equality for all, and is incompatible with freedom for the individual, a Constitutional Republic as guaranteed by the Constitution.
