The Marketplace


Came across this quote on free speech.  Good to remember the wisdom:

“The marketplace of ideas holds that the truth will emerge from the competition of ideas in free, transparent public discourse and concludes that ideas and ideologies will be culled according to their superiority or inferiority and widespread acceptance among the population.”

Oliver Wendell Holmes, 1919
