Conference Theme: the cause of freedom

“Above all, it requires a belief in what used to be called the free world: of its shared moral principles, broad interests, and long-term aspirations. We don’t have that, either.

The axis of evil is back, not that it ever really went away. The cause of freedom awaits a resurrection.”

I was inspired by this particular quote from Anna Julia Cooper:

“The cause of freedom is not the cause of a race or a sect, a party or a class -- it is the cause 

of humankind, the very birthright of humanity.”
