Quote of the Day

“I do encourage you to question authority, apply logic, and think for yourself. Look at the forest, not the trees. And the centuries, not the months. Or you might risk being lead willingly, as a sheep, to the slaughter.”

— Rick Gaber

Quote of the Day

“Can we assume that a thing is right if it is legal? But slavery was once
legal; Nazism was legal. Well, can we assume a thing is right if it is endorsed
by majority rule? But a lynch mob is majority rule. Is a thing sure to be
right, then, if it comes about through the democratic process? But fascist
dictator Juan Perón of Argentina was democratically elected by majority rule on
two occasions. . . . Well, how about the Constitution? But again we run into
difficulties, for the Constitution can be amended to say anything the society
wishes it to say. Suppose, for example, the Constitution were amended to permit
the lynching of blacks—would this practice become ethically correct merely
because the Constitution permitted it? The moral basis of capitalism is the
right of each individual to live his own life, for his own sake.”
— R.W. Grant
