Today we bring you a quote from the revered science fiction author, Robert Heinlein.

While his politics evolved from liberal to increasingly conservative over the course of his lifetime, Heinlein always considered himself a radical libertarian. His futuristic adventures often emphasized the necessity of individualism, and his themes of personal freedom and free thought have found a common audience among hippies and staunch libertarians alike.

“An armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one may have to back up his acts with his life.”

– Robert Heinlein, Beyond This Horizon
