09:50 am - Something I care a lot about--and so do other people
Give me the liberty to know, to utter, and to argue freely according to conscience, above all liberties." --Areopagitica, John Milton, 1644

"He that would make his own liberty secure must guard even his enemy from opposition; for if he violates this duty he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself."
--Dissertations on First Principles of Government, Thomas Paine

"If we don’t believe in freedom of expression for people we despise, we don’t believe in it at all." --Noam Chomsky

"[F]reedom to differ is not limited to things that do not matter much. That would be a mere shadow of freedom. The test of its substance is the right to differ as to things that touch the heart of the existing order." --Supreme Court Justice Robert H. Jackson, West Virginia State Board of Education v. Barnette, 319 U.S. 624 (1943)

"I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it."
--Beatrice Hall, The Friends of Voltaire, 1906
