  • 在思想市场中,政府管制是不适宜的,应该对政府管制加以严格限制。

    ———— 罗纳德•哈里•科斯

    In the market for ideas, government regulation is undesirable and should be strictly limited.

    ———— Ronald Harry Coase

  • 没有出版自由,其他一切自由都是泡影。自由的一种形式制约着另一种形式,正像身体的这一部分制约着另一部分一样。只要某一种自由成问题,那么整个自由都成问题。

    ———— 卡尔•马克思

    The absence of freedom of the press makes all other freedoms illusory. One form of freedom governs another just as one limb of the body does another. Whenever a particular freedom is put in question, freedom in general is put in question.

    ———— Karl Marx

  • 我们永远不能确定自己所奋力压制的看法是错误的;即便确定了,对它的压制也是个错误。

    ———— 约翰•斯图尔特•密尔

    We can never be sure that the opinion we are endeavoring to stifle is a false opinion; and if we were sure, stifling it would be an evil still.

    ———— John Stuart Mill

  • 让真理和谬误争斗;谁曾听说在自由和公开的冲撞中,真理会处于劣势?

    ———— 约翰•弥尔顿

    Let truth and falsehood grapple; who ever knew truth put to the worse, in a free and open encounter.

    ———— John Milton

  • 夫人朝夕退而游焉,以议执政之善否。其所善者,吾则行之;其所恶者,吾则改之。

    ———— 子产

    People gather in countryside school after work every day for talking over whether governance is good or bad. I will carry out what they regard as good while reform what they regard as bad.

    ———— Zichan

  • 上以风化下,下以风刺上;主文而谲谏。言之者无罪,闻之者足以戒。

    ———— 《毛诗序》

    Political elites moralize ordinary people with poem, while the latter criticize the former with poem. Criticism is in a cultural way. Critics are not guilty and the criticized should be warned enough.

    ———— the Preface for Book of Songs

  • 昔者天子有争臣七人,虽无道,不失其天下;诸侯有争臣五人,虽无道,不失其国。

    ———— 孔子

    In ancient time, a king with seven critics among ministers would maintain his world although he might have no justice; a duke with five critics among ministers would maintain his state although he might have no justice.

    ———— Confucius

  • 防民之口,甚于防川。川壅而溃,伤人必多;民亦如之。是故为川者决之使导,为民者宣之使言。

    ———— 召公

    To block people’s mouths is more difficult than to block rivers. When rivers are blocked, they will burst the banks and hurt lots of people. The same is true with blocking people’s mouths. Therefore, a governor of river should dredge it while a governor of people should encourage them to speak.

    ———— Duke of Shao
