Random quote of the day:

 

“The rubber-stamp thinking of the world always makes the assumption that the exposure of an error is identical with the discovery of truth—that the error and truth are simply opposites. They are nothing of the sort. What the world turns to, when it has been cured of one error, is usually simply another error, and maybe one worse than the first one.”

—H. L. Mencken, Prejudices, Third Series
