    I don't have to tell you things are bad. everybody knows things are bad. It's a depression. Everybody's out of work or scared
    of losing their job, the dollar buys a nickel's worth, banks are going bust, shopkeepers keep a
    gun under the counter, punks are running wild in the streets, and there's nobody anywhere who
    seems to know what to do, and there's no end to it. We know the air's unfit to breathe and
    our food is unfit to eat, and we sit and watch our tee-vees while some local newscaster
    tells us today we had fifteen homicides and sixty-three violent crimes, as if that's
    the way it's supposed to be. We all know things are bad. Worse than bad. They're crazy. It's like everything's going crazy. So we don't go out any more. We sit in the house, and slowly the world we live in gets smaller, and all we ask is please, at least leave us alone in our own living rooms. Let me have my toaster and my tee-vee and my hair-dryer and my steelbelted
    radials, and I won't say anything, just leave us alone. Well, I'm not going to leave you
    alone. I want you to get mad. I don't want you to riot. I don't want you to protest. I don't want you to write your congressmen. Because I wouldn't know what to tell you to write. I don't know what to do about the depression and the inflation and the defense budget and the Russians and crime in the street. All I know is first you got to get mad. You've got to say:"I'm
    mad as hell and I'm not going to take this any more. I'm a human being, goddammit. My life
    has value." So I want you to get up now. I want you to get out of your chairs and go to the window. Right now. I want you to go to the window, open it, and stick your head out and yell. I want you to yell: "I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take this any more!"
