From the Patriot Post:
"The ideal tyranny is that which is ignorantly self-administered by its victims. The most perfect slaves are, therefore, those which blissfully and unawaredly enslave themselves. A truth's initial commotion is directly proportional to how deeply the lie was believed. It wasn't the world being round that agitated people, but that the world wasn't flat. When a well-packaged web of lies has been sold gradually to the masses over generations, the truth will seem utterly preposterous and its speaker a raving lunatic." --author Dresden James
I reflected on how the Founding Fathers would be received today.
Poorly I imagine.
Also, go subscribe, get the recent Patriot Post (3-30-09) and read how Mark Levin describes the descent from a "soft tyranny" to a "hard tyranny".
