Как я поняла страница еще не создана, но если интересно я написала диссертацию на тему "Политико-правовое учение идеолога английского либерализма Дж.Ст. Милля". Подробности на адрес a-soroka@

the worst offence that can be committed by a polemic...[edit]

I found this attributed to Mill on a small number of sites, but without a source:

"the worst offence that can be committed by a polemic is to stigmatise those who hold a contrary opinion as bad and immoral men."

Searching for fragments of this long sentence got better results (e.g. "those who hold a contrary opinion as bad and immoral men."), but only up to about 6 hits of this same quote, and still no source. Google Books also failed. --Singkong2005 00:17, 29 May 2008 (UTC)


Wikiquote no longer allows unsourced quotations, and they are in process of being removed from our pages (see Wikiquote:Limits on quotations); but if you can provide a reliable and precise source for any quote on this list please move it to John Stuart Mill. --Antiquary 20:52, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

  • That which seems the height of absurdity in one generation often becomes the height of wisdom in the next.
  • If a people do not have the right to decide with whom they share their country, they have no rights at all.
  • A general State education is a mere contrivance for molding people to be exactly like one another; and as the mold in which it casts them is that which pleases the dominant power in the government, whether this be a monarch, an aristocracy, or a majority of the existing generation; in proportion as it is efficient and successful, it establishes a despotism over the mind, leading by a natural tendency to one over the body.
