Dinesh D'Souza Quotes.

1. "America is the greatest, freest and most decent society in existence. It is an oasis of goodness in a desert of cynicism and barbarism. This country, once an experiment unique in the world, is now the last best hope for the world."
- Quote by Dinesh D'Souza

2. "Whenever the government is involved, there is an element of coercion."
- Quote by Dinesh D'Souza

3. "Unequal prosperity is better than shared poverty."
- Quote by Dinesh D'Souza

4. "In my view, the pro-life movement at this point should focus on seeking to reduce the number of abortions. At times it will require political education and legal fights, at times it will require education and the establishment of alternatives to abortion, such as adoption centers. Unfortunately, such measures are sometimes opposed by so-called hard-liners in the pro-life movement. These hard-liners are fools. Because they want to outlaw all abortions, they refuse to settle for stopping some abortions; the consequence is that they end up preventing no abortions."
- Dinesh D'Souza, Letters to a Young Conservative

5. "There is a legitimate argument over whether the death penalty effectively deters violent crime, although my personal observation is that not one of the criminals who have been executed over the years has ever killed again."
- Dinesh D'Souza, Letters to a Young Conservative

6. "In philosophy seminars, the choice is usually between good and evil. In the real world, however, the choice is often between a bad guy and a worse guy."
- Dinesh D'Souza, Letters to a Young Conservative

7. "Classical liberalism . . . does not wholly define modern American conservatism. There is an added element: a concern with social and civic virtue. The term virtue has become a bad word in some quarters of American life. (It is especially unpopular with the chronically wicked and depraved.) Young people, especially, tend to associate it with finger-wagging and with people who tell you how to live your life. This is a very narrow view of virtue: It applies only to what it is good to do, rather than what it is good to be and what it is good to love. . . . Conservatives recognize, of course, that people frequently fall short of these standards. In their personal conduct, conservatives do not claim to be better than anyone else. . . . But for conservatives, these lapses do not provide an excuse to get rid of the standards. Even hypocrisy--professing one thing but doing another--is in the conservative view preferable to a denial of standards because such denial leads to moral chaos or nihilism."
- Dinesh D'Souza, Letters to a Young Conservative

8. "So what if people disagree about values? People also disagree about facts. . . . In my view, the great intellectual challenge facing conservatives is to make the case for morality at a time when many in the West have ceased to believe in an external moral order. The decline of belief in such an order is the most important political development of the past two centuries. Indeed, this decline has created the "crisis of the West."
- Dinesh D'Souza, Letters to a Young Conservative

9. "Today, there are probably more Marxists on the faculty of our elite colleges than there are in all of Russia and Eastern Europe."
- Dinesh D'Souza, Letters to a Young Conservative

10. "In order to give man freedom and enable human choices to have consequences, God creates for man an independent, lawful universe. The freedom of man requires, it turns out, the self-limitation of God as well as the independence of the world."
- Dinesh D'Souza, What's So Great about God: A Reasonable Defense of the Goodness of God in a World Filled with Suffering
