Friday, September 17, 2004What a great quote:
"In every age, the urge to intolerance presents itself anew. We must not become complacent about the freedom of conscience any more than we would take for granted the other rights that we now enjoy."How true. And for that matter, how can we assume (as we often do) that our conceptions of personal and societal liberty are permanent, given its frighteningly fragile nature throughout recorded history? The quote's from Jason Kuznicki over at Positive Liberty, and you can read the rest in this superbly thought-provoking post, "Religious Tolerance: Reformation and Enlightenment."
