2001 - from The New Thought Police
There is a method to the madness of those who have chosen to protect us from ourselves. Nothing in the theory of feminism or civil rights requires people to stop thinking their own thoughts. On the contrary, civil rights are reliant on individual freedom. The spiral down and away from individual liberty can be traced directly to the rejection of the rights of one for the rights of the many. This group-rights mentality is nothing new; it is steeped in the "progressive" concept that the individual must submit to what is best for everyone else. This idea stems not from the ideal of civil rights but from the well of socialism, the foundational model of the far Left.

Whittier, John Greenleaf
I trace your lines of argument; / Your logic linked and strong / I weigh as one who dreads dissent, / And fears a doubt as wrong. / But still my human hands are weak / to hold your iron creeds; / Against the words ye bid me speak / My heart within me pleads.

from "Revelation"
Wilde, Oscar
It is only an auctioneer who should admire all schools of art.

Feb. 8, 1886 - from "To Read, or Not to Read", published in the Pall Mall Gazette
Zeller, Richard
There was a time that ... honorable people could disagree honorably; now, any challenge to the campus sacred cows (feminism, affirmative action, and multiculturalism) is denounced as evil.
