Re: <nettime> libreselfindigestion [elloi, guderian]



Emma Goldman, yes, but she /actually/ said:

"I want freedom, the right to self-expression, everyboy's right to 
beautiful, radiant things."

She is widely misquoted as saying "If I can't dance, it's not my 
revolution".

The possible origins of this common misquotation are explained at
