If all mankind minus one were of one opinion, and only one person were of the contrary opinion, mankind would be no more justified in silencing that one person than he, if he had the power, would be justified in silencing mankind--John Stuart Mill


Found this one to think on. Free speech rocks! haven't quite figured out the big deal with the Muslim editorial cartoons. I have yet to see anything so disgusting i felt like killing someone. Ah well.

On a semi-related note I am reading Jesusland by Julia Scheeres. very rough shit. very well written. you know in a horror movie where you know something horrible is going to happen but don't know when or what? this whole book is just building up like that, going from one bad situation to a worse one, spiralling down to god knows where. the author obviously lives but other than that i don't know.

wil update tomorrow with how i liked Home at the End of the World and Brokeback Mountain (the movie).
