Robert F. Kennedy on Extremism
Given the extremism in this year’s Presidential Primaries, this quote from Robert F. Kennedy seems timely.
“What is objectionable, what is dangerous about extremists is not that they are extreme, but that they are intolerant. The evil is not what they say about their cause, but what they say about their opponents.”
This quote is as true today as it was in 1964. It is from and essay “Extremism, Left and Right” and is found in Kennedy’s book: The Pursuit of Justice (1964)
