Martin Sostre in Court:
On Hostility, Paranoia, & Psychiatric Abuse

“There are all sorts of goons,” Martin continued. “Intellectual goons, goons with badges, and goons in judicial robes. Because you see hostility in hostility the intellectual goons say you are a paranoid. I feel hostility because I see hostility. Even I can see that that’s normal and I’m a high school dropout.” [. . . . ]
