Wise Words

Saw this on Bartleby.com and thought it was insightful enough to be worth passing along:

“Loss of freedom seldom happens overnight. Oppression doesn’t stand on the doorstep with toothbrush moustache and swastika armband-it creeps up insidiously … step by step, and all of a sudden the unfortunate citizen realises that it is gone.” — Baron Lane, British judge and Lord Chief Justice of England; quoted in the Independent, 2/3/1990.

Wise words — and worth keeping in mind today, as our freedoms are eroded bit by bit
