Chains vs. Freedom...

If you've never read any of John Holt's books, you've missed some good stuff. Here is one of my favorite quotes of his:

"In a nutshell, people whose lives are hard, boring, painful, meaningless—people who suffer—tend to resent those who seem to suffer less than they do, and will make them suffer if they can. People who feel themselves in chains, with no hope of ever getting them off, want to put chains on everyone else." —John Holt, Teach Your Own
