Re: Quote of the Moment

Posted by Jon on March 13, 2010, 10:09 pm, in reply to "Quote of the Moment"

A context would be rather helpful on this one, at least to this humble wretch. If the context were, for example, the life of Nelson Mandela then I could see a connection (tenuous though it is) between the two notions. If the context were the life of Dick Cheney...not. (Or would that one have to be spelled Right?) A collateral question would be, Can you be Free and wrong? Also, the fact that the quote apposes right in the lower case and freedom in the upper case, at least in English, makes the apposition unequal and out of balance (the hand tipped toward freedom, the bias out of the bag). So it is a demonstrably unequal and therefore unfair choice.... Actually it isn't a choice at all IMHWO.
