The Defense of Liberty <– Barry Goldwater

27 Mar

For the past century, Americans have mostly voted against unprincipled "moderates".

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, presidential nomination acceptance speech (1964)
