We are told to remember the idea and not the man.
Because a man can fail.
He can be caught
he can be killed and forgotten.
But 400 years later……
an idea can still change the world.
I have witnessed firsthand the power of ideas.
I’ve seen people kill in the name of them…
…and die defending them.
But you cannot kiss an idea…
…cannot touch it or hold it.
Ideas do not bleed.
They do not feel pain.
They do not love.
