Subject opinion to coercion: whom will you make your inquisitors? Fallible men, governed by bad passions, by private as well as public reasons. And why subject it to coercion? To produce uniformity? But is uniformity of opinion desirable? No more than of face and stature.

- Thomas Jefferson


Truth is a mighty word, but with so little understanding. A tree is a tree, but if one were to call it shade, would that not be true also? The words you apply to defining the tree depend on how you want to use the tree. The truth is that no matter what words are applied the tree is still a tree. It is worth discovering and understanding a bit of the shade under the tree, while making it clear that a tree is still a tree
