Quotation of the Day

I think that the central liberal thought - the thought about freedom - is probably completely doomed at the moment. I don't think there's a chance in hell that we are going to be able to continue to organise our society around notions of freedom in anything like the way we have. The degradation of the human environment has gone so far that we'll need to move into a world where we subject ourselves to very strict controls. The alternative is massive war about resources. - Raymond Geuss

Good background about the American philosopher Geuss here:

Kiss goodbye to freedom
