Robert A. Heinlein's Soaring Spirit of Liberty

A Man Whose Stories Have Inspired Generations

JULY 01, 1997 by JIM POWELL

For instance, in Requiem (1939): It's neither your business, nor the business of . . . paternalistic government, to tell a man not to risk his life doing what he really wants to do.
