Peace, Diversity, and the Open Society

Mankind must put an end to war before war puts an end to mankind.

A nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open market is a nation that is afraid of its people.

Peace is a daily, a weekly, a monthly process, gradually changing opinions, slowly eroding old barriers, quietly building new structures.

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.

Geography has made us neighbors. History has made us friends. Economics has made us partners, and necessity has made us allies. Those whom God has so joined together, let no man put asunder.

— John F. Kennedy would have been 100 years old today, and America would have been a very different place today if his vision were permitted to thrive through the 1960s and beyond.
