As so often before, liberty has been wounded in the house of its friends. Liberty in the wild and freakish hands of fanatics has once more, as frequently in the past, proved the effective helpmate of autocracy and the twin-brother of tyranny.
more Otto Hermann Kahn quotes
The practical objection to Puritanism, as to every form of fanaticism, is that it singles out certain evils as so much worse than others that they must suppressed at all costs. The fanatic fails to recognise that the suppression of a real evil, if carried out too drastically , produces other evils which are even greater.
