Not Afraid

Illustration of Alfred Smedberg's The boy who never was afraid, in the children's anthology Among pixies and trolls, 1912We are not afraid to entrust the American people with unpleasant facts, foreign ideas, alien philosophies, and competitive values. For a nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open market is afraid of its people.

-- John Fitzgerald Kennedy (1917-1963), 35th President of the United States
