• Lord, enlighten thou our enemies. Sharpen their wits, give acuteness to their perceptions, and consecutiveness and clearness to their reasoning powers: we are in danger from their folly, not from their wisdom; their weakness is what fills us with apprehension, not their strength.

    John Stuart Mill (1864). “Dissertations and Discussions: Political, Philosophical, and Historical”, p.77
