I'm for truth, no matter who tells it. I'm for justice, no matter who it is for or against. I'm a human being, first and foremost, and as such I'm for whoever and whatever benefits humanity as a whole.

It takes a certain ingenuous faith- but I have it -to believe that people who read and reflect more likely than not come to judge things with liberality and truth.
A faith that cannot survive collision with the truth is not worth many regrets.
