Quote of the Day

While reading this post at Cafe Hayek this morning, a quote from the author, Don Boudreaux, stood out.

It’s much easier — and probably more viscerally gratifying — to accuse those with whom you disagree of moral failings than to grapple with the content of their arguments.

I know I’ve fallen into that in some of my writing, although I try not to do so. But I like this quote for its universal applicability, especially to blogging, where opponents are faceless.
