Lunatic Fringe and Abuse of Philosophy

I wanted to share two quotes that are not parallel, but are closely related.  These are good to keep in mind when discussing philosophical issues and worldviews.

The first quote is by a friend of mine, Bob Young.

Quoting the lunatic fringe just succeeds in killing straw men.

The second one is very closely related; it’s by Augustine.

Never judge a philosophy by its abuse.
