Josiah Warren

How's this for declining useless debate?

"I decline all noisy, wordy, confused, and personal controversies. This subject is presented for calm study and honest enquiry ; and, after having placed it (as I intend to do) fairly before the public, shall leave it to be estimated by each individual according to the particular measure of understanding, and shall offer no violence to his individuality by any attempt to restrain, or to urge him beyond it."

Josiah Warren, Manifesto, 1841
