Freedom Of Ideas

Here is my advice as we begin the century

that will lead to 2081.

First, guard the freedom of ideas at all costs.

Be alert that dictators have always played on

the natural human tendency

to blame others and to oversimplify.

And don’t regard yourself as a guardian of freedom

unless you respect and preserve the rights of people

you disagree with to free, public, unhampered expression.

~Gerard K. O’Neill, 2081
