We Can't Let These People Win

Okay, I'm in the middle of The Hunger Games.  That's part of my problem, I suppose.

But beyond that, I was raised to believe that totalitarianism is a bad thing.  And history has proven my upbringing to be absolutely right on that.  It fails wherever it's been tried.

That doesn't mean, however, that there aren't ignorant, self-interested scientists out there - some in high places - who think it might be a neat idea - no, an imperative - that, because of the looming threat of "global warming" (or whatever they're calling it today), we need a planetary government power structure entrusted with "heavy-handed, transnational enforcement powers."

Read The Hunger Games.  Read 1984.  Read Darkness at Noon.  Read Gulag Archipelago.  Read Fahrenheit 451.

Be afraid.

Be prepared.

Lock and load.
