Quotes for January 24, 2008

Johann von Schiller:

  • The voice of the majority is no proof of justice.

Edward B. Wagner:

  • Stop wasting jail space on prostitutes, drug users and other victimless criminals. Even if we find it morally acceptable to imprison these people for choices they make regarding their bodies, we must realize that we simply cannot afford to continue clogging the court system and the prison system with these harmless criminals.

Kenneth D. Wald:

  • Given the ambiguity of religious texts and teachings, the mixed historical record, and the empirical evidence, it would be foolhardy to assert that religious faith necessarily upholds democratic values.

George Washington:

  • If we are wise, let us prepare for the worst.

Alan Watts:

  • But when no risk is taken there is no freedom. It is thus that, in an industrial society, the plethora of laws made for our personal safety convert the land into a nursery, and policemen hired to protect us become selfserving busybodies.
