in reply to The Lighter Side of Perl Culture (Part V): Poetry

Did anyone else look at this quote from Larry:

Look at the use of parentheses in Lisp or the use of white space as syntax in Python. Or the mandatory use of objects in many languages, including Java. All of these are ways of taking freedom away from the end user 'for their own good'. They're just versions of Orwell's Newspeak, in which it's impossible to think bad thoughts.
and think, "Isn't whitespace part of syntax in perl 6?"
