Keep The Candle Burning

      - Rian Malan, My Traitor's Heart

The Harper Conservatives will tell us they're not the first to act this way.  They would be correct on that point.

The Enlightenment was seen as a turning point in Western Civilization, where we began to emerge from the Dark Ages into a time where reason, knowledge and compassion ruled.  If we want to keep it that way, we're going to have to light the way forward from within

UPDATE Sept 23/13: "This is more than an attack on academic freedom.  It is an attempt to guarantee public ignorance."

Forgive them, lord...
