The Spirit of Liberty

by John Grom  |  July 1, 2022

“The spirit of liberty is the spirit that is not too sure that it is right. IT is the spirit which seek to understand the mind of other men and women, which weighs their interest alongside its own without bias.”

Learned Hand

“There is virtually no hint of that spirit in our brutal battles over abortion and guns and so many other hotly contested issues. We have all but forgotten how to reason together, how to compromise, how to keep disagreement from devolving into enmity. Our culture is fraying at the seams, and it won’t knit itself back together.”

Jeff Jacoby, Boston Globe
