Quote of the day, May 5

John Milton, on freedom of expression (from Areopagitica, 1644)

“And though all the winds of doctrine were let loose to play upon the earth, so Truth be in the field, we do injuriously by licensing and prohibiting to misdoubt her strength. Let her and Falsehood grapple; who ever knew Truth put to the worse, in a free an open encounter?”
