We are defenceless against ourselves because we glory in war, eat other animals, ignorance, and praise the very people who have a gun to our heads.

    Yes, I would much prefer to take my chances in the wild than going through a check point on the highway. I never thought it would come to 'papers, please' while driving through my own neighborhood. Big brother's police state is simply a corral of domesticated beasts-of-burden awaiting slaughter.
