Sooner or later censorship is going to have to be considered as popular culture continues plunging to ever more sickening lows. The alternative to censorship, legal and moral, will be a brutalized and chaotic culture, with all that entails for our society, economy, politics, and physical safety.
~ Robert Bork, in Slouching Towards Gomorrah (NY: HarperCollins, 1996), p. 140
In the long run of history, the censor and the inquisitor have always lost. The only sure weapon against bad ideas is better ideas. The source of better ideas is wisdom. The surest path to wisdom is a liberal education.
~ Alfred Whitney Griswold, in Essays on Education
