creative force is present in all humans to some degree. Pressures to conform
within education and society often silence creative expression for many
students and citizens. The potential for its development remains, however.
... The right of an individual to create new ideas and to expect a
respectful, supportive climate for their expression is a human right too
often ignored. The human right to think and be heard at higher, more complex
and mutualistic levels is a necessary added freedom."
