John V. Lindsay Quote

“There are men – now in power in this country – who do not respect dissent, who cannot cope with turmoil, and who believe that the people of America are ready to support repression as long as it is done with a quiet voice and a business suit.”

~ John V. Lindsay

Speech, University of California, 2 April 1970
