Quote of the Day

29 Oct

Men rarely admit their fear of freedom openly, however, tending rather to camouflage it – sometimes unconsciously – by presenting themselves as defenders of freedom.  They give their doubts and misgivings an air of profound sobriety, as befitting custodians of freedom.  But they confuse freedom with the maintenance of the status quo; so that if [an idea] threatens to place that status quo in question, it thereby seems to constitute a threat to freedom itself.  – Paulo Freire
