"None of us here in Washington knows all or even half of the answers. You people out there in the fifty states states had better understand that. If you love your country, don't depend on handouts from Washington for your information. If you cherish your freedom, don't leave it all up to BIG GOVERNMENT." - Barry Goldwater.
"I would remind you that extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice! And let me remind you also that moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue!" - Barry Goldwater, speech, accepting Republican presidential nomination, July 16, 1964.
That is so true, but it is an inadequate warning. We need to be warned that
if anyone claims to be wise, they are a propagandist.And that if anyone claims to be objective, they are claliming to be wise.
We need to be warned, IOW, that "objective journalism" is a tendentious fraud. You can't trust anyone to tell you "what is going on." Everyone has the right to their own opinion about that - and everyone is entitled to shout their opinion at the top of their lungs.
