In response to this July 30, 2006 New York Times editorial: A Senate Race in Connecticut John Aravosis writes in his americablog:
We are turning into a police state. No, there are no ovens and mass executions in America. But if people believe that the only lessons we learned from World War II, from fighting the Soviets, and from every other war, cold and hot, that America ever fought is to simply avoid genocide, well, that’s a rather short-sided lesson to take from history.
I hate to quote Star Wars as the authoritative word on freedom, but there was a hell of a quote in the last film:
“So this is how democracy dies, to thunderous applause.”
