If humanity minus one were of one opinion, then humanity is no more justified in silencing the one than the one – if s/he had the power – would be justified in silencing humanity. – John Stuart Mill

    ek dink ek sal aanbied om myself in hulle plek te skiet. weet nie of ek myself so ver sal kan kry om iemand anders te skiet nie.
    ek dink elkeen van sy stelings by “the quotations page” (volg die link) is briljant.

    didn’t have to read too far for my favourite:

    Conservatives are not necessarily stupid, but most stupid people are conservatives.

    mill was about the ‘greater good’ wasn’t he? I don’t know whether i would…i’m not sure the argument allows such an ethical out. but then would you really shoot yourself? what if you had kids? they’re criminals why shoot yourself? they’re only going to shoot them all anyway? and they’re criminals…

    he he he – it’s a tough one

    Ek is nogal heel gemaklik daarmee dat silencing en listening 2 verskillende goete is.

    En Dorothy, sorry, I did reply to a previous question of yours, but it somehow vanished. I am quite sure it was not because of the blog owner, though.
