“It is consummate folly to tolerate every variety of opinion, on every topic, out of devotion to an abstract “liberty”; for opinion soon finds its expression in action, and the fanatics whom we tolerated will not tolerate us when they have power.”
George H. Nash, The Conservative Intellectual Movement in America Since 1945

“Those who would have us again go to war to save democracy might give a little thought to the likelihood that we would come out of any such struggle a despotism ourselves.”
George H. Nash, Freedom Betrayed: Herbert Hoover's Secret History of the Second World War and Its Aftermath
