Freedom in Action

Whenever someone contemplates reality in pure pursuit of knowledge and without regard for immediate practical purposes;

Whenever someone, oblivious of possible usefulness, disadvantages, danger, or even death, is able to say,

“So it is; this is the truth!”

(e.g. “The Emperor has no clothes!”)—

Then we witness, in an eminent degree, human freedom in action.
