Quote du Jour

Long experience has taught us that it is dangerous in the interest of truth to suppress opinions and ideas; it has further taught us that it is foolish to imagine that we can do so. It is far easier to meet an evil in the open and defeat it in fair combat in people’s minds than to drive it underground and have no hold on it or proper approach to it. Evil flourishes far more in the shadows than in the light of day.

— Jawaharlal Nehru (1889-1964), Prime Minister of India

    Let’s all try to remember this. When it comes to Iraq, Rwanda, Climate Change….false truths that too many in the world still believe.

    Too often, when we try to talk to others about the truth, and we find push back, we stop, we would rather not rock the boat.

    The boat needs to be rocked, and rocked hard. I’m just as guilty as the rest of being quiet, but the quote you posted above inspires me.
