This image has been floating around the internet, being used for subjects like the legalization of marijuana. What people may not know is that the quote is actually taken from a speech on the limitation of Osteopathy.
“I didn’t care much about the osteopath, but as soon as I found they were going to drive them out I got in a state of uneasiness, I can’t sleep nights now.”
Whether you compare Mark Twain’s words to medicine, drugs, body modification, or sexuality the wisdom still holds true. If it only affects our bodies then it should be our right to do as we wish. Don’t agree? Then don’t do it. It’s really that simple.
