If this nation is to be wise as well as strong, if we are to achieve our destiny, then we need more new ideas for more wise men reading more good books in more public libraries. These libraries should be open to all-except the censor. We must know all the facts and hear all the alternatives and listen to all the criticisms. Let us welcome controversial books and controversial authors. For the Bill of Rights is the guardian of our security as well as our liberty.
- John Fitzgerald Kennedy
I just watched a compelling documentary called Unconstitutional: The War on our Civil Liberties.
I highly recommend it, whatever your political viewpoint.
