The limits of dialogue

"I learned that is is impossible to discuss with terror and on terror, as there are no premises for discussion – and such a discussion becomes a collaboration with terror. . . .I think that in those years [1960s], I learned where discussion must stop because it is turning into a lie, and resistance must begin in order to maintain freedom." 

New York Times Magazine, 1985
