Breaking the Tyranny of Mortal Mind

From the December 1971 issue of The Christian Science Journal


It is often said that we live in a permissive society, that is, a society in which people are relatively free to do what they want in personal life, the business world, or the world of art and drama, without fear of attracting much criticism or comment from others, or much attention from the law. The sort of permissiveness that claims that each one should be free to "do his thing," to indulge all his passing whims or lusts regardless of the consequences for others, is the bogus freedom offered by animal magnetism, the attracting power of evil.
