The Politics of Fear

I stumbled across this quote recently from Edward Murrow, referring to Senator McCarthy, that has relevance in today’s era of fear and politics:

“We will not be driven by fear into an age of unreason, if we dig deep into our own history and our doctrine and remember that we are not descended from fearful men, not men who feared to write, to speak, to associate, and to defend causes which were for the moment unpopular.”
