I always find it funny that liberals are okay with quotes like this when it comes to things like drugs, but that self ownership sentiment goes out the window when you want to go in to business or sell your labor.

Edit: voat, you never fail to impress. I express an unpopular opinion and instead of downvotes, I get civil discussion.

Working for less than a minimum wage, refusing service to gays, etc.. I (like Twain if I recall correctly) am an anarchist so this quote is consistent from our point of view. Liberals like the language but don't follow through. Conservatives get the same treatment when they talk about freedom.

The idea is that liberals want maximum individual freedom and minimum corporate freedom.

Incidentally he wasn't defending drug use there, but alternative medicine. (osteopathy)
