"The inability of human beings in so many parts of the world to engage in free exchange of ideas should make us aware, by force of contrast, of the privilege we still enjoy and of our duty of defending and extending it. It should make us aware
that free thought itself, free inquiry, is crippled and finally paralyzed by supression of free communication. Such communication includes the right and responsibility of submitting every ideas and belief to severest criticism. It is less important that we all believe alike than that we all inquire freely and put at the disposal of one another such glimpes as we may obtain of the truth for which we are in search."
-John Dewey, Experience,
Knowledge and Value
