There is a Christmas song that I heard several times while trucking up north. Since I'm now local, I doubt I'll ever hear it here, so I was hoping someone could tell me who it is. It has the line "the twelve things at Christmas that really get to me", and it's a comedic song, sounds like Mel Brooks.
The peculiar evil of silencing the expression of an opinion is, that it is robbing the human race; posterity as well as the existing generation; those who dissent from the opinion, still more than those who hold it. If the opinion is right, they are deprived of the opportunity of exchanging error for truth: if wrong, they lose, what is almost as great a benefit, the clearer perception and livelier impression of truth, produced by its collision with error. ~John Stuart Mill, On Liberty, 1859
Education: that which reveals to the wise, and conceals from the stupid, the vast limits of their knowledge.
