Serious post time

morelen, in an essay about the death of habeus corpus:

..."Those terrorists, who "hate us for our freedom" so much, are winning in a sense. It is at the hands of our own government who, for the purposes of "security" against threats that may not even exist, is taking away our most basic rights. By spreading fear and outright lying, they are basically bringing Orwell’s vision of "1984" to life. Last week, the White House said, "We never actually used the phrase stay the course." Yes, and we have always been at war with Eurasia.

Benjamin Franklin famously wrote, "Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." It is a shameful time for America and we get what we deserve."
