The dangers of a closed mind

"Value-laden words are often rejected as merely showing the prejudices of the people using them. One man's terrorist is another's freedom fighter. What you call rudeness I call refreshing candour. And a fanatic is just a dedicated enthusiast whose cause we disapprove of. I beg to differ. What's more, I don't think this is a mere matter of opinion. There is such a thing as fanaticism, it is always wrong, and if you disagree you're wrong too."
