Quote of the day

”And where once you had the freedom to object, think, and speak as you saw fit, you now have censors and systems of surveillance coercing your conformity and soliciting your submission.

How did this happen? Who's to blame?

Well, certainly there are those more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable, but again, truth be told, if you're looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror.

I know why you did it.

I know you were afraid. Who wouldn't be? War, terror, disease. There were a myriad of problems which conspired to corrupt your reason and rob you of your common sense.

Fear got the best of you - and in your panic you turned to the now Prime Minister Gordon Brown High Chancellor, Adam Sutler.

He promised you order, he promised you peace, and all he demanded in return was your silent, obedient consent.”

Henry, You have a point, but as Justice Robert Jackson said:

It is not the function of government to keep the citizen from falling into error; it is the function of the citizen to keep the government from falling into error."
