C.S. Lewis on “Domestic Tyrannies”

“I’m learning so much, not only from your letters, about domestic tyrannies in the States, that I wonder how you have the face to keep a statue of Liberty staring out over New York harbor. Or is the point that she looks seaward and turns her back on America?”

From a letter to Mary Willis Shelburne, 6 June 1955.
