Bonus Quotation of the Day…

by Don Boudreaux on June 22, 2020

in Philosophy of Freedom

… is from this recent statement from the leaders of Hillsdale College:

There is a kind of virtue that is cheap. It consists of jumping on cost-free bandwagons of public feeling – perhaps even deeply justified public feeling – and winning approval by espousing the right opinion.

DBx: I applaud Hilldale’s statement. Actions speak much louder and more truthfully than words. Words, of course, speak. Words matter. But talk is typically much more cheap than are actions.
