The exchange of information, including ideas, very much pertains
In the "open marketplace of ideas", concepts which are truly alien
to our own viewpoints should be tolerated, else the marketplace
is not open. It is hoped that, when presented with all possible
choices, most people will be able to discern between that which
is valid and that which is claptrap. Tolerance does not imply
acceptance or endorsement.
We are living in interesting times. Perhaps the best hope for
the continuation of our species concerns the ability to openly
exchange ideas and information.
As Unicode does so much to make such communication possible,
I am thankful to everyone involved in the project.
