In response to:

Soul Power from the August 24, 1967 issue

To the Editors:

Andrew Kopkind writes in your August 24, 1967 issue: “Morality, like politics, starts at the barrel of a gun.”

Has it occurred to Mr. Kopkind or the editors that this is but a restatement of the Der Stuermer doctrine, “When I hear the word culture I draw my revolver”?
