Permissive society in Britain

“Let us be on the side of people who want to be free to live their own lives, to make their own mistakes, and to decide , in an adult way and provided they do not infringe the right of others, the code by which they wish to live; and on the aids too of experiment and brightness […] of fuller lives and greater freedom.”

– Roy Jenkins, The Labour case, published in 1959.
