Personal Info
Investment Philosophy “The sooner we all learn to make a decision between disapproval and censorship, the better off society will be....Censorship cannot get at the real evil, and it is an evil in itself.”
- Granville Hicks
Interests/Hobby “Censorship is the tool of those who have the need to hide actualities from themselves and from others. Their fear is only their inability to face what is real, and I can't vent any anger against them. I only feel this appalling sadness. Somewhere, in their upbringing, they were shielded against the total facts of our existence. They were only taught to look one way when many ways exist.”
Favorite Quote “Censorship of anything, at any time, in any place, on whatever pretense, has always been and always will be the last resort of the boob and the bigot.”
- Eugene O'Neill

“Free societies...are societies in motion, and with motion comes tension, dissent, friction. Free people strike sparks, and those sparks are the best evidence of freedom's existence.”
-John Lennon
Person I'd Like to Meet “Censorship ends in logical completeness when nobody is allowed to read any books except the books that nobody reads.”
- George Bernard Shaw
Favorite Movie “Who is more to be pitied, a writer bound and gagged by policemen or one living in perfect freedom who has nothing more to say?”
- Kurt Vonnegut
Favorite Artist “Withholding information is the essence of tyranny. Control of the flow of information is the tool of the dictatorship.”
- Bruce Coville
Favorite Sports Team “When you tear out a man's tongue, you are not proving him a liar, you're only telling the world that you fear what he might say.”
- George Martin
