    Another one that has also come true during the last eight years:”Those who would sacrifice freedom for security deserve neither.”  – Benjamin Franklin, American founding father and jack-of-all-trades  1706-1790  (I believe this was also paraphrased by Franklin Delano Roosevelt)OR”If mankind minus one were of one opinion, then mankind is no more justified in silencing the one than the one – if he had the power – would be justified in silencing mankind.”  – John Stuart Mill, British philosopher  1806-1873Though I think that both of these will be changing for the better with our new president.
