Pass the Talking Stick

Freedom for Others

The whole essence of freedom is that it is freedom for others as well as ourselves, . . . a conception which is not born with us, but which we must painfully acquire. Most of us have no instinct at all to preserve the right of the other fellow to think what he likes about our beliefs, and to say what he likes about our opinions . . . [But] if truth is to emerge, and in the long run be triumphant, the process of free debate, the untrammeled clash of opinion, must go on.”

 Robert Menzies (1894-1978), Australias longest-serving prime minister, 1942 URL (Thanks to alert WORDster Bill Snaddon in Swaziland)
