Louis J. Halle Quote

“If what is best in mankind, and what its progress depends on, manifests itself primarily in the individual and only secondarily in the mass, then our objectives should be to maintain such freedom as allows the individual to think and speak for himself.”

~ Louis J. Halle

The Ideological Imagination, 1972

Yes. Individual freedom is more important that "the greater good" (socialism and communism).

Mike, Norwalk

Sort of an anemic, back handed, and apologetic squeak at Joe above's more accurate assessment.

jim k, Austin, Tx

Well said,Joe.

I agree, but why does it sound like a 'BUT' follows this quote from a 'policy-maker at the U.S. Department of State' ? ;-)
