Are You ? PREMIERE: The Organism A professional politician is a professionally dishonorable man. In order to get anywhere near high office he has to make so many compromises and submit to so many humiliations that he becomes indistinguishable from a streetwalker. May we think of freedom, not as the right to do as we please, but as the opportunity to do what is right. When a man is denied the right to live the life he believes in, he has no choice but to become an outlaw.
