Television and Cinema Verities #16

“I’ve always been obsessed with the ideas of prisons in a liberal democratic society.  I believe in democracy, but the inherent danger is that with an excess of freedom in all directions we will eventually destroy ourselves.”
– Patrick McGoohan, creator of The Prisoner.  From Gary Gerani’s Fantastic Television (Harmony Books, 1977, page 121).
