And this is what I believe: that the free, exploring mind of the individual human is the most valuable thing in the world. And this I would fight for: the freedom of the mind to take any directions it wishes, undirected. And this I must fight against: any idea, religion, or government which limits or destroys the individual. This is what I am and what I am about. I can understand why a system built on a pattern must try to destroy the free mind, for that is one thing which can by inspection destroy such a system. Surely I can understand this, and I hate it and I will fight against it to preserve the only thing that separates us from uncreative beasts. If the glory can be killed, we are lost.
John Steinbeck, East of Eden
Those who would give up
Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty
Benjamin Franklin (1759)
