Sam Harris - on Raif Badawi
World famous Neuroscientist, Philosopher and Author Sam Harris has today sent his message of support to Raif Badawi.
"Freedom of speech is the public good that safeguards all others. It is the basis of science—and of intellectual and social progress generally—and it remains the only assurance that human beings can pursue their diverse ends through conversation and compromise, rather than through oppression and violence. Few governments ignore these truths as shamelessly as the current regime of Saudi Arabia. And nothing attests to its barbarism more clearly than the imprisonment and torture of Raif Badawi."
Sam Harris, neuroscientist, author and philosopher.
