Remember, remember: Liberties are like muscles

In the spirit of commemoration, I thought we could mark this November the Fifth by taking some time out of our daily lives and consider again where society is going. Where once you had the freedom to object, to think and speak as you saw fit, you now have censors and systems of surveillance coercing your conformity and soliciting your submission. It may not be much, yet, but it is there. How did this happen?

Liberties are like muscles. They must be exercised regularly and in full, even to a degree of discomfort, or they will wither, atrophy, and vanish.

Privacy remains your own responsibility.
