Let a Hundred Flowers Bloom

Kenneth Rexroth (1905-1982), "An Age of Inoffensiveness," San Francisco Examiner (December, 1961):
I think the world was better when Senator Borah, William Jennings Bryan, Abie Kabibble, the Two Black Crows, Eugene V. Debs, burlesque shows, Bert Savoy and Mr. Dooley were all at large in the land, each raising his special brand of commotion. It was certainly livelier.

Let a hundred flowers bloom, say I, and if that be subversion, make the most of it.
