Quote of the Day (Michael Walzer, on Toleration and Difference)

“Toleration makes difference possible; difference makes toleration necessary.”— Michael Walzer, On Toleration (1997)

In memoriam: the Orlando shooting victims. Never has toleration been more necessary, in the American double experiment in pluralism and democracy, than now, when a sexual minority is massacred for being different and an entire religious minority falls under suspicion for the crimes of a small subset.
