When I attended Penn, we had fewer sources of information. As a result, my world seemed a lot smaller than yours, and a great deal slower. News arrived twice a day — mornings and evenings — and there were only a few outlets. Reporters generally refrained from passing on gossip and innuendo. Most people had limited ability to communicate with anyone beyond their neighborhood.
Today, you are relentlessly bombarded with information, much of it of unknown reliability.
The internet lets people share their most ignorant thoughts. Many news stories rely on anonymous sources, without providing details to assess their credibility and bias. Some critics worry that our society will be unable to distinguish fact from opinion, and truth from fiction.
But I remain optimistic about your generation. Most adults were raised with the mindset that they could rely on one or two trusted intermediaries to deliver objective facts — a local newspaper, perhaps, and a favorite television news anchor. But members of your generation take a different approach. You do not rely on any one news source. You recognize that some people who appear regularly on television — the ones who always form an opinion before they know the facts — those characters are in the entertainment business. Because you understand that, you are more skeptical, and less gullible.
I work in a town where almost everyone is obsessed with breaking news, but I unplugged the television in my office.
I try not to worry too much about what a commentator may say in the next 30 minutes. Instead, our law enforcement team focuses on what it takes to keep America safe for the next 30 years, and beyond. When you study history, you learn to focus on the things that matter. It is not meant to be taken literally. It is a lesson about human nature. Human nature is why we need rules, and it is why rules only work if we enforce them.
When Franklin was walking home from the Constitutional Convention — about two miles from here — a woman named Elizabeth Powel asked him what type of government the Founders created. The Constitution comes with a condition. Some people think that politicians are responsible for keeping the republic. But Franklin spoke to an ordinary citizen — a woman, who did not even have the right to vote. The lesson is that everyone is responsible. The people are the government.
This is a participatory activity. I have worked with law enforcement professionals for three decades. Some of them do the job for the money, but most are inspired by the realization that they are the government, a calling that we recognize as patriotism. At the Department of Justice, our patriotic mission is to promote the rule of law. Through law, we have ensured liberty. As the President recognized, law provides the framework for freedom.
The rule of law is indispensable to a thriving and vibrant society. It shields citizens from government overreach. It allows businesses to invest with confidence. It gives innovators protection for their discoveries. It keeps people safe from dangerous criminals. And it allows us to resolve differences peacefully through reason and logic. When you follow the law, it does not always yield the outcome you would choose. In fact, one indicator that you are following the law is when you respect a result although you do not agree with it. You respect it because it is dictated by the facts and the law.
Abraham Lincoln discussed the issue in his first published speech, in Lincoln worried about sharp political divisions and rising passions in our young republic. He argued that respect for the law is essential to bind society together. Two decades later, in , Lincoln engaged in a series of seven lengthy debates with his Senate opponent, Stephen Douglas. The opening speaker addressed the audience for one hour.
The other speaker took an hour and a half to reply. Then the first debater spent another half hour to respond. People disagreed — sometimes vehemently — but they listened patiently, and they learned about opposing arguments.
