"Tyranny is always whimsical."

That is what Mark Steyn wrote in this piece and it's worth every moment of reading. Masterfully put...

"That's Stage Two of societal enervation—when the state as guarantor of all your basic needs becomes increasingly comfortable with regulating your behavior. Free peoples who were once willing to give their lives for liberty can be persuaded very quickly to relinquish their liberties for a quiet life."

My God, guilty as charged. I just wish to be left alone with what I have and what I earn. And in this...stasis...I lose - all? Quite possibly. It may be time to rethink my position.
