"The dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate to the stormy present. The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise with the occasion. As our case is new, so we must think anew and act anew. We must disenthrall ourselves, and then we shall save our country."
What a great quote. As Joshua says, pay particular attention to the word disenthrall
Apply liberally to issues of foreign policy, racism, gender inequality, cold war thought etc etc...
