"This is a letter of hate..."

 

"This is a letter of hate. It is for you my countrymen, 
I mean those men of my country who have defiled it. 
The men with manic fingers leading the sightless, 
feeble, betrayed body of my country to its death. 
You are its murderers, and there's little left in my own brain but the thoughts of murder for you." 
 ~ the original angry young man, playwright John Osborne, back when it was still      legal to hate (from The Tribune, 18 August, 1961)
