    of the abridgement of freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments by those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations.

    James Madison

    So, yes, I completely agree with creeper, and Madison.

    It's getting drafty in here. Somebody close the war.

    •  In general, I would agree (0+ / 0-)

      the freedoms that we lose in a slow, creeping fashion, perhaps over generation, are the ones maybe not even realized and therefor perhaps most damaging. But it is also changes that occur under the cover of the ever-expanding Black Budget, unseen by regular mortals, that also threaten us all by their very nature due to lack of oversight.

      The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it's profitable to continue the illusion. -FZ
