Walter Lippmann

was an American intellectual, writer, reporter, and political commentator famous for being among the first to introduce the concept of Cold War
Since my moral system rests on my accepted version of the facts, he who denies my moral judgments or my version of the facts, is to me perverse, alien, dangerous. How shall I account for him? The opponent has always to be explained, and the last explanation that we ever look for is that he sees a different set of facts. Such an explanation we avoid, because it saps the very foundation of our own assurance that we have seen life steadily and seen it whole.More Walter Lippmann quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

The modern state claims all of these powers, and, in the matter of theory, there is no real difference in the size of the claim between communists, fascistsMore Walter Lippmann quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The essential discovery of maturity has little if anything to do with information about the names, the locations, and the sequence of facts; it is the acquiring of a different sense of life, a different kind of intuition about the nature of things.More Walter Lippmann quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
