    This obvious truth is only semi-articulated and out of context. Another part of it might be expressed by saying "Justice implies refusing to allow the intolerable to persist."

    Well, of course it's out of context. All quotes are out of context. Let's all add our own addenda why don't we?

    All quotes are out of context, but we respond to them within a context. And if we don't have an agenda, someone else will impose his agenda.

    Dudes, is it agenda or addenda? There's a difference.
