“In a society where dissenting viewpoints are suppressed, those viewpoints are potent and dangerous. Where dissent is tolerated, it rapidly becomes quaint and is viewed as unsophisticated; people merely amuse themselves with the expression of contrary opinion. They ‘try on’ ideas and ideologues as they would a new hat or boutonniere, discarding them just as readily. Conformity then supplants awareness as the cornerstone of wisdom. ‘Getting along’ becomes the highest ambition of the ‘good citizen.’”
