[Zitat] George Washington – Redefreiheit

“Wenn uns die Redefreiheit genommen wird, dann können wir stumm und still wie Schafe zum Schlachten geführt werden.”

George Washington


George Washington (1732 – 1799), erster Präsident der Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika.


“If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.”


From George Washington to Officers of the Army, 15 March 1783

(…)
