Fear Of Freedom

The fear of freedom is strong in us. We call it chaos or anarchy, and the words are threatening. We live in a true chaos of contradicting authorities, an age of conformism without community, of proximity without communication. We could only fear chaos if we imagined that it was unknown to us, but in fact we know it very well.

-- Germaine Greer (January 29, 1939-) Australian academic, writer, broadcaster, and feminist
