Abhorrent ideas need to be challenged by better ones, not banned."

Today's Quote

The legislator should direct his attention above all to the education of youth; for the neglect of education does harm to the constitution.

The character of democracy creates democracy, and the character of oligarchy creates oligarchy."
Author: Aristotle
