“At this moment individuals are being drained of their personalities and being brainwashed into slaves. The inquisition of the mind by psychiatrists is far worse than the assault on the body of torturers.” — Patrick McGoohan, 1968 interview
Every once in a while I come across an article that I wish I’d written. It isn’t just the content, which plays directly to my double interests of personal freedoms and McGoohan’s singularly excellent program “The Prisoner”, but the author’s prose is elegantly wonderful. If you’re a fan of “The Prisoner”, I highly recommend this article to your reading pleasure this Columbus Day weekend.
In fact, I might just dust off our “Prisoner” DVDs and give them a spin this weekend.
