Permissiveness Quotes

What I fear from these reports is that the prevalent use of foul language has become an acceptable pattern in the schools, probably due in large part to the influence of TV and the general permissiveness in our society.

It seems the door to permissiveness, the door to lewdness and vulgarity and obscenity swings only one way. It only opens farther and farther; it never seems to swing back. Individuals can choose to close it, but it is certain, historically speaking, that public appetite and public policy will not close it. No, in the moral realm the only real control you have is self-control.

— Jeffrey R. Holland

S. Lewis).

— Anonymous.

It is hardy a wonder, then, that they withdraw into what used to be called "permissiveness" but is really neglect.

— C. Sommerville
