Quote of the Day

The history of human thought recalls the swinging of a pendulum
which takes centuries to swing. After a long period of slumber comes a
moment of awakening. Then thought frees herself from the chains with
which those interested — rulers, lawyers, clerics — have carefully
enwound her. She shatters the chains. She subjects to severe criticism
all that has been taught her, and lays bare the emptiness of the
religious political, legal, and social prejudices amid which she has
vegetated. She starts research in new paths, enriches our knowledge with
new discoveries, creates new sciences.

–Peter Kropotkin
