The Greatest Compliment
"The greatest compliment one man can pay to another is to attempt to silence him by force." Can't find who said that--wasn't me--but I think it's germane.
"To the future or to the past, to a time when thought is free...to a time when truth exists, and what is done cannot be undone...From the age of uniformity, from the age of solitude, from the age of Big Brother, from the age of doublethink--greetings!" - George Orwell, 1984
