  •  While I routinely condemn comparisons (10+ / 0-)

    of human beings to animals, in this case the analogy is curiously apt, in one specific sense:

    "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
