Weekly Political Quote

It is another Saturday--my how time flies when you are medicated. This week's quote is from Jefferson. I am not one of his biggest fans but he did have a way with words.

Reason and free inquiry are the only effectual agents against error... They are the natural enemies of error, and of error only... If [free enquiry] be restrained now, the present corruptions will be protected, and new ones encouraged. - Thomas Jefferson: Notes on Virginia, 1782.

It is just too damn bad that there is so little of reason and free inquiry left in the US.
