"The theory of free speech, that truth is so much larger and stranger
and more many-sided than we know of, that it is very much better at all
costs to hear everyone’s account of it, is a theory which has been
justified on the whole by experiment, but which remains a very daring
and even a very surprising theory. It is really one of the great
discoveries of the modern time."
by:
Gilbert Keith Chesterton
(1874-1936) British essayist, critic, poet, and novelist
