"...every group that wishes to see conflicting interests resolved reasonably, or is wise about the conditions under which it enjoys its own freedom, must be profoundly concerned with the state of freedom of speech and assembly, freedom of inquiry and teaching, freedom of press and other forms of communication, freedom of cultural opportunity and development.  For in large measure intelligent moral choice depends upon them."
  --Sidney Hook (1902-1988), disciple of John Dewey, and champion of pragmatism and democracy
