Able to Be Response-Able

This mind-enhancing quote appears in the current issue of Paula Peterson's EARTHCODE newsletter:

"Freedom is only part of the story and half the truth ... That is why I recommend that the Statue of Liberty on the East Coast be supplanted by a Statue of Responsibility on the West Coast."

-- Viktor E. Frankl (Holocaust Survivor, Psychotherapist & Best-Selling Author of the highly acclaimed, Man's Search for Meaning)

I only wonder whether the quote's been accurately replicated here: could Frankl really have meant supplant (i.e., replace) the Statue of Liberty? Or perhaps, supplement, which means to complete or complement what already exists?
