It was a pleasure to burn

Сто лет Рэю Брэдбери.
"К черту любого, кто говорит мне, что именно я должен писать!"

So whereas back then I wrote about the tyranny of the majority, today I’d combine that with the tyranny of the minorities. These days, you have to be careful of both. They both want to control you. The first group, by making you do the same thing over and over again. The second group is indicated by the letters I get from the Vassar girls who want me to put more women’s lib in The Martian Chronicles, or from blacks who want more black people in Dandelion Wine.

I say to both bunches, “Whether you’re majority or minority, bug off!” To hell with anybody who wants to tell me what to write.
