Quote Of The Day, January 15, 2013
“We asked for freedom of the press, thought, and civil liberties in the past because we were in the opposition and needed these liberties to conquer. Now that we have conquered, there is no longer any need for such civil liberties.”
– Nikolai Bukharin, the first editor of the Soviet communist newspaper Pravda. Bukharin was executed as an enemy of the state in 1937.
