Defend the Truth

Is it not obvious that, just as it is a crime to disturb the peace when truth reigns, it is also a crime to remain at peace when the truth is being destroyed?  There is therefore a time when peace is just and a time when it is unjust.  Weaklings are those who know the truth, but maintain it only as far as it is in their interest to do so, and apart from that forsake it.

Blaise Pascal, cited by Gary Gilley, "Postmodernism, Part V: Confronting Postmodernists"
