Quote of the Day

From the inimitable PZ Myers....

When you say you favor increasing individual freedom, you actually mean increasing the individual freedom of healthy white male heterosexuals who have skills that corporate interests find profitable, which, I'm sorry to say, is an extremely narrow slice of our culture, and not necessarily the best element of our society.

And this is what's always left out of the discussion... "more freedom" is usually a code phrase for "more convenience for people like me, particularly if it means I won't have to deal as much with THOSE people...."
