Quote of the day–Herbert Marcuse

Self-determination, the autonomy of the individual, asserts itself in the right to race his automobile, to handle his power tools, to buy a gun, to communicate to mass audiences his opinion, no matter how ignorant, how aggressive, it may be.

[Some people don’t want to be liberated. And a great many more don’t want others to be liberated either.–Joe]
