New Inquisition sentences
As mentioned previously, I have been reading my copy of the new Hilaritas edition of The New Inquisition. (I bought the ebook, but it's also out in trade paper).
I'll reserve judgment on the book until I can finish it, but I enjoyed the first chapter. Here are some sentences from it I particularly liked:
Civil liberties are profoundly counter-intuitive. It takes an effort of imagination and good will to remember that those we despise deserve the same legal rights as those who agree with us.
At least a partial agnosticism is necessary before we can sincerely and consistently pursue the goal of "equal justice for all."
