A Quote by Alan Shore on fear, freedom, and bill of rights

“Adlai Stevenson, 1952, ‘The tragedy of our day is the climate of fear in which we live, and fear breeds repression.  Too often sinister threats to the bill of rights, to freedom of the mind are concealed under the patriotic cloak of anti-communism.’ Today it is the cloak for anti terrorism.” Adlai Stevenson also said, ‘It is far easier to fight for principles than to live up to them.’ I know we are all afraid, but the bill of rights, we have to live up to that.”
