"If what is best in mankind, and what its progress depends on,
manifests itself primarily in the individual
and only secondarily in the mass,
then our objectives should be to maintain such freedom
as allows the individual to think and speak for himself."
by:
Louis J. Halle
(1910-1998) Professor at the Graduate Institute of International Studies, Geneva; policy maker at U.S. Department of State

    Sort of an anemic, back handed, and apologetic squeak at Joe above's more accurate assessment.

    I agree, but why does it sound like a 'BUT' follows this quote from a 'policy-maker at the U.S. Department of State' ? ;-)
