Intellectual Freedom

Intellectual freedom is a precious kind of friendship and honesty we can share with ourselves, even when it is unsafe or impossible to share with others. Sharing with others can be uncomfortable – and in some contexts, impossible – the emotional, visceral and intimately personal quality of ideas is as rarely acknowledged as is the implausible objectivity many (if not most) of them aspire to but if you possess a good mind, treasure it and seek it in others.
