All American citizens are now threatened by a government who can arrest them without the most basic right of all guaranteed to them. This is what this whole thing has been all about from Day 1 of the Bush Administration: the removal, piece by piece, in the name of "terror", of the rights of citizens in this democracy. And tomorrow the AM Radio Fascist will tell the fucking sheep this is good for them. Fucking 1984 is here.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
