Take Note...IVIn Cryptography teasers, a phrase or expressions has been encoded in some way (frequently by replacing letters with other letters). You need to figure out the encoding method and then decode the message to find the answer.
Decode the following:
"Drgslfg uivv hkvvxs ml hvzixs uli gifgs rh klhhryov... ml wrhxlevib lu gifgs rh fhvufo... Yvggvi z gslfhzmwulow zyfhv lu uivv hkvvxs gszm wvmrzo lu uivv hkvvxs. Gsv zyfhv wrvh rm z wzb, yfg gsv wvmrzo hozbh gsv oruv lu gsv kvlkov, zmw vmglnyh gsv slkv lu gsv izxv."

HintThe code is an Atbash Cipher
Answer"Without free speech no search for truth is possible... no discovery of truth is useful... Better a thousandfold abuse of free speech than denial of free speech. The abuse dies in a day, but the denial slays the life of the people, and entombs the hope of the race."
- Charles Bradlaugh
Charles Bradlaugh was a well known 19th century political activist and atheist. He lived from 1833-1891. One attendant at his funeral was Mohandas Gandhi.
The Atbash Cipher is a very simple substitution method of encoding, where the alphabet is simply reversed. For example: A= Z, B= Y, C= X, and so forth.
