Pathiaicon

(no subject)

Since I was banned from somewhere, I won't say where so don't ask, I couldn't post these quotes I found relevant to the debate we were having.


"Every generation needs a new revolution."

"I have recently been examining all the known superstitions of the world, and do not find in our particular superstition one redeeming feature. They are all alikefounded on fables and mythology."

"In every country and every age, the priest had been hostile to Liberty."

"When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty."

"We may consider each generation as a distinct nation, with a right, by the will of its majority, to bind themselves, but none to bind the succeeding generation, more than the inhabitants of another country."

"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants."

"The spirit of this country is totally adverse to a large military force."
