In Orthodoxy Quotes
When an opinion has taken root in a democracy and established itself in the minds of the majority, if afterward persists by itself, needing no effort to maintain it since no one attacks it. Those who at first rejected it as false come in the end to adopt it as accepted, and even those who still at the bottom of their hearts oppose it keep their views to themselves, taking great care to avoid a dangerous and futile contest.

In Orthodoxy Quotes
At any given moment there is an orthodoxy, a body of ideas of which it is assumed that all right-thinking people will accept without question; It is not exactly forbidden to say this, that or the other, but it is ''not done'' to say it; Anyone who challenges the prevailing orthodoxy finds himself silenced with surprising effectiveness; A genuinely unfashionable opinion is almost never given a fair hearing, either in the popular press or in the high-brow periodicals
