“I’ve met Bocker several times. He’s a civilized, liberal.minded man–with the usual trouble of liberal-minded men; that they think others are, too. He has an interested, inquiring mind. He has never grasped that the average mind when it encounters something new is scared, and says: ‘Better smash it, or suppress it, quick.'”

-John Wyndham, The Kraken Wakes
