“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."

“In our age there is no such thing as ‘keeping out of politics.’ All issues are political issues….”
“The Revolution will be complete when the language is perfect.” ― George Orwell
A final relevant quote from Solzhenitsyn’s speech: he opines that in the long run “liberalism is displaced by radicalism; radicalism surrenders to socialism; socialism can’t resist communism”.
Will we, as a free people, disrupt that path by insisting that our political leaders follow the dictates of the First Amendment to our Constitution i.e. freedom of speech, freedom of the press, right of the people to peacefully assemble, and the protection of religious freedom against government interference? I believe it is incumbent upon those of my generation to speak out to preserve our democratic principles for future generations.
I have been banned from commenting on Blogger. Washington DC is under occupation by an army. Whose army? I'll tell you this:
If the occupation continues after the last cherry blossoms fall, you will know that the occupying force is not protecting you or the interest of free Americans.
