Rosa Luxemburg knew "the free battle of opinions" is essential to socialism

"Without general elections, without freedom of the press, freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, without the free battle of opinions, life in every public institution withers away, becomes a caricature of itself, and bureaucracy rises as the only deciding factor." —Rosa Luxemburg

I share this today because the poor guy who was attacked by Antifa for holding a sign saying "The Right to Openly Discuss Ideas Must be Defended" would've really put Antifa on the spot if his sign had said "The free battle of opinions must be defended. Rosa Luxemburg was right."

"Freedom is always the freedom of dissenters." —Rosa Luxemburg
