Quote of the Day

“If you hamper the war effort of one side, you automatically help out that of the other. Nor is there any real way of remaining outside such a war as the present one. In practice, 'he that is not with me is against me.'"

Eric Blair [George Orwell]

Hat tip: Cliff May [here]. Read May's whole article about the tendency of academics to retreat into a "Switzerland of the mind" where moral equivalency and neutrality rule.
