>>I felt that I now understood the new regime: absolute freedom..except that any official from dogcatcher to supreme potentate could give any orders whatever to any private citizen at any time. So it was "freedom" as defined by Orwell and Kafka, "freedom" as granted by Stalin and Hitler, "freedom" to pace back and forth in your cage.<<
Excerpt taken from "The cat who walks through walls" by Robert A. Heinlein. It sums up rather well what this world is coming to: we are free within the ever tighter becoming bounderies the governments lay upon us."War on communism"; "war on drugs" and "war on terror" seem nothing more than excuses to gain further control of decent law-abiding citizens.
When will we, the people, regain power and take back control over our lives again?
Perhaps my grandchildren will live to tell of the days people lived in made-up freedom and be truly free. Like dolphins are free, only bound by the laws of nature.
