THINK ABOUT IT #4: Lenny Bruce

People should be taught what is, not what should beWe're all taught a what-should-be culture.  Which means, a lot of bullshit.  Emmis.  Because instead of being taught, This is what is –– that's a beautiful truth, what man always has been –– we're taught the fantasy, man.  But if we were taught This Is What Is, I think we'd be less screwed up 

Quoted in The Essential Lenny Bruce (1967)
