This Week’s Quote: “The people terrorists kill are not the targets; they are collateral damage. And blowing up planes, trains, markets or buses is not the goal; those are just tactics. The real targets of terrorism are the rest of us: the billions of us who are not killed but are terrorized because of the killing. The real point of terrorism is not the act itself, but our reaction to the act. And we’re doing exactly what the terrorists want.” —Bruce Schneier

This Week’s Quote: “The world faces a choice, by spending a relatively little amount of money on proven solutions, we can help poor farmers feed themselves and their families and continue writing the story of a steadily more equitable world. Or we can decide to tolerate a very different world in which one in seven people needlessly lives on the edge of starvation.” —Bill Gates

This Week’s Quote: “When someone gets something everyone is due by right, they are not privileged because others did not get that something. Racism or some other form of discriminatory bias may well be at work, but it’s not a ‘privilege’ to be treated civilly. Let’s see to it everyone is so regarded.” —Jim Babka
