The freedoms we take for granted will be deemed by the state to be socially divisive luxuries that have outlived their usefulness and are best discarded in the interest of societal cohesion. At some point we will be told by the state to shut up or else. When only some few brave souls refuse to be silent, then Liberty meets it’s end, hands bound… blindfolded in front of Adobe Walls.
It started with a post at The Camp of the Saints. It continued with a comment at said post. Then Bob Belvedere asked the question, “Whither Liberty?” and gave the comment a well-deserved post of its own. I’ve chosen to begin my post with the end of that post…because I believe you NEED to read it.
Many thanks to TCOTS and his commenter.
