Lawrence Ferlinghetti about censorship, civil liberties, the left and right wings:

Is the current threat to our civil liberties comparable to what you experienced in the early '50s?

No, it's much worse. That was nothing back then. President Eisenhower's reign was very stultifying; there was lots of unspoken censorship. But today, Eisenhower looks like an angel compared to these bandits who are now running Washington. They're criminals; they're international criminals. Under both Bush administrations, they've reappointed at least four felons who were convicted during the Watergate years and during Iran-Contra. They're in government now. These are international criminals, and the spineless Democrats are doing nothing about it.
