    ("Song of the Prisoner in the Tower"):

    Un sperrt man mich ein im finstern Kerker
    Dies alles ist nur vergebliche Werke,
    Denn meine Gedanken zerreißen die Schranken
    und Mauern entzwei. Die Gedanken sind frei!

    "The great lie of democracy, its essential paradox, is that democracy is the first to be sacrificed when its security is at risk. Every state is totalitarian at heart; there are no ends to the cruelty it will go to to protect itself." -- Ian McDonald
