Besides IF blog, which I work along with some friends of mine, I also have a private website duerre.de. Unfortunately, I hardly ever seem to find time for extending and editing my eider “catch phrases” (Stichworte). However, I regularly use the duerre.de homepage for exchanging “important ideas”.
Yesterday, I published the following current citation:
» Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety. «
Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790)
According to wikiquote, the original is actually by Benjamin Franklin.
In my opinion, this statement by Benjamin Franklin should make us particularly thoughtful these days.
