—Tom Wolfe (b. 1931)
“I believe that man is in the last resort so free a being that his right to be what he believes himself to be cannot be contested.”
—G.C. (Georg Christoph)
“Democratization is not democracy; it is a slogan for the temporary liberalization handed down from an autocrat. Glasnost is not free speech; only free speech, constitutionally guaranteed, is free speech.”
—Gail Sheehy (b. 1937)
