Midnight (01:04) September 9, 1922

Bernarr Macfadden, publisher

"The idea that we can love only one person in the world is utterly preposterous. We can love everyone that attracts us. And if I love somebody and that somebody loves me, it doesn't matter how many wives he has or how many husbands I have, we can do just as we two please, and care nothing for what anybody has to say. It's our business, and it has the only blessing necessary upon it--and that is love! ... You need to be educated in anarchy. Do you know that anarchy will one day sweep, not only this country but the whole world? Then you shall see what we make of love!"
This is the fourth weekly issue of Midnight magazine, from September 9, 1922. This issue features an editorial by publisher Bernarr Macfadden on the unhealthiness of drunkenness, an expose of the KKK, an essay by New York mayor John F. Hylan, a story on the wickedness of Greenwich Village, and an interview with anarchist Emma Goldman on her ideas about free love. [May contain mature or controversial content.]
