What does this quote mean? "Basic human problems can have no final solutions." Spannerjam (talk) 07:25, 28 April 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I cannot give you a straight answer, but I can tell you that it is part of a bigger quote:
  • Free men are aware of the imperfection inherent in human affairs, and they are willing to fight and die for that which is not perfect. They know that basic human problems can have no final solutions, that our freedom, justice, equality, etc. are far from absolute, and that the good life is compounded of half measures, compromises, lesser evils, and gropings toward the perfect. The rejection of approximations and the insistence on absolutes are the manifestation of a nihilism that loathes freedom, tolerance, and equity.
And we could add this as a whole to the article. -- Mdd (talk) 11:02, 28 April 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
