A Great Quote

Saturday, November 10, 2007

Got this in my email inbox today, and made me marvel. It is especially relevant in our "I'm OK, you're OK" and "Let's agree to disagree" culture of moral and intellectual relativity.

"People hardly ever make use of the freedom they have, for example, freedom of thought; instead they demand freedom of speech as a compensation."
-- Soren Kierkegaard
(1813-1855) Danish philosopher

Hmmm. Wouldn't today's culture classify this quote as "politically incorrect"?
