Words of Wisdom -- C.S. Lewis

Every tyrant must begin by claiming to have what his victims respect and to give what they want. The majority in most modern countries respect science and want to be planned. And, therefore, almost by definition, if any man or group wishes to enslave us it will of course describe itself as ’scientific planned democracy’.

C.S. Lewis wrote the above words about 60 years ago. Americans somehow seem to forget that more than 100 million people were killed by their own governments. Today, the powerful in America believe that they should impose their solutions upon others. Tyranny by democracy is still tyranny.
