Perhaps it will be the masters of our police state apparatus […]Read more "When we’ve lost our freedom, it’s GAME OVER"
A free society does not only become unfree at the point of a gun. It becomes unfree when its mechanisms of freedom are jammed, when the institutions that are meant to provide power to the people are taken over by unelected forces and twisted into the apparatus of a new tyranny.
