AN UNCOMMON THOUGHT

Will.

Doisneau, The Clock, 1956


Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the "good" of its victims may be the most oppressive. This very kindness stings with intolerable insult. To be "cured" against one's will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals.

C.S. Lewis
