How to Kill Freedom
If a leader has an obsession to micromanage everyone’s lives, he need only declare war claiming it is self defence or revenge. In war, the people will submit like sheep to any repressive measure. If anyone objects, they can revile him as a traitor for giving comfort to the enemy.~ Roedy (1948-02-04 age:70)
Recall how the Patriot Act was all ready to go prior to 2001-09-11. It had clauses nothing to do with terrorism, like absolving Merck of legal responsibility. The silly senators passed it in a panic before it had even been printed, much less read. America gave up its freedom to treacherous people. Recall the Orwellian defending freedom rhetoric used to sell it.
