“Soft despotism is a term coined by Alexis de Tocqueville describing the state into which a country overrun by "a network of small complicated rules" might degrade. Soft despotism is different from despotism (also called 'hard despotism') in the sense that it is not obvious to the people."

Whit and I have been unhappy with the boring bickering and single note response regardless of the topic. I would like to hear some suggestions about where we go from here, if anywhere.
