Can anybody tell me the article that this quote of Franks came from, I'm paraphrasing here, so forgive me for not being word perfect.
"The pantomime will continue until it is to expensive to run any more then they'll just pull back the curtains and show you the brick wall at the back of the theater"
Much obliged.

Found the quote not sure from where or when.

"The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it's profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater."

Yep that's was the quote I was thinking of. Sorry for not checking this but I don't come here much anymore. I got anther one for if your interested. This one was in an article where Frank said he had a new born again hair cut, which would place it around 1980-81. This quote had to do with the question "What do you see the biggest problem in the future"? Franks reply was mental illness. Do you know where that article came from. From memory Frank had been interviewed by female reporter and she used to were bright red lipstick but she stopped and Frank said it looked good and should keep wearing it.
Thanks

bam: what's the most shocking secret being kept from the masses today?
fz: everybody has the potential to be intelligent

bam: what needs to be done to achieve that end?
fz: well, i used to say, there are two things wrong with this world: one of them is readers, and the other one is writers but i've modified that...

... there are three things wrong with this world: one of them is readers, the other one is writers, and the biggest problem is mental health; people are not mentally healthy

bam: what does that spring from?
fz: a bad diet...
