—“The very first adjustment, that I had to make, the very first time I set foot in the USA, was to redefine ‘freedom’. ‘Freedom’ here means ‘freedom to make money’ – the word has no other meaning. As an immediate afterthought – and ‘God’ is for those who stand in the way of that. 

I had just landed in Boston, that thought coincided with leaving the airport and hitting the first public road.

In Culebra, a tiny island (Virgin Islands) in the grip of the Big Bald Eagle (USA), where I live now, ‘liberty’ only has meaning in the context of its abuse: to take a liberty.”— Paul Franklin
