Subtly becoming a police state

John Perry Barlow, Co-Founder of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, had this to say on September 11th: (this is only a snippet of a much larger essay, which is definitely worth reading once or twice)

"Within a few hours, we will see beginning the most vigorous efforts to end what remains of freedom in America. Those of who are willing to sacrifice a little - largely illusory - safety in order to maintain our faith in the original ideals of America will have to fight for those ideals just as vigorously."
