"Do not blame Caesar, blame the people of Rome who have so enthusiastically acclaimed and adored him and rejoiced in their loss of freedom and danced in his path and given him triumphal processions.   Blame the people who hail him when he speaks in the Forum of the "new wonderful good society" which shall now be Rome's, interpreted to mean "more money, more ease, more security, and more living fatly at the expense of the industrious".
- Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43 BC)

Not A Very PC Thing To Say: How The Language Police Are Perverting Liberalism
-Jonathan Chait, NY Mag


“If men are to be precluded from offering their sentiments on a matter, which may involve the most serious and alarming consequences that can invite the consideration of mankind, reason is of no use to us; the freedom of speech may be taken away, and dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep, to the slaughter.” 

-George Washington, ADDRESS TO THE OFFICERS OF THE ARMY, SATURDAY, MARCH 15, 1783
