	It's not that simple. Dead and dying trees are essential to the health
of the forest as well - they return nutrients to the soil, provide homes
for certain wildlife species, and so forth. If you manage a forest in
the manner you suggest, the result will essentially be a city park.


It is our attitude toward free thought and free expression that will
determine our fate. There must be no limit on the range of temperate
discussion, no limits on thought. No subject must be taboo. No censor
must preside at our assemblies.
