brought a comparable degree of scientific extermination and moral degeneracy."
-- Quote Bertrand Russell, Speech to the First Meeting of Members of the War Crimes Tribunal, London, 13-Nov-1966 [From Autobiography (Allena & Unwin, 1969), vol. III, pp. 215-16]
"Of the great religions of history, I prefer Buddhism, especially in its earliest
forms, because it has had the smallest element of persecution."
-- Quote Bertrand Russell, What is an Agnostic?

"We must repudiate the degenerate conception of individual intelligence, which

-- Quote Bertrand Russell, Speech to the First Meeting of Members of the War Crimes Tribunal, London, 13-Nov-1966 [From Autobiography (Allen & Unwin, 1969), vol. III, pp. 215-16]
