"Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."

Benjamin Franklin, Historical Review of Pennsylvania, 1759 US author, diplomat, inventor, physicist, politician, & printer (1706 - 1790) http://www.quotationspage.com/quote/1381.html

This famous quote should be tweet spammed at quite a few of the big tech corps. They need a lesson.

Pretty sure they understand this. They're giving up your liberty for a little bit more security.

Except this isn't even about safety. When you allow them to make this about safety, you're admitting that words are dangerous, akin to violence.

Indeed words are akin to violence ... as words carry the logo of action . Free speech has an opportunity cost not all wish to pay. Will you allow the Trotsky JUUU to twist this truth to their own power ? For me ... I accept liberty, I accept the danger ... and I will strike at the tyrant who tries removing my choice.

...and end up with neither.

Our enemies don't sincerely believe what they claim. They're pretenses to try to get us to go along with their sabotage.

If you kill a Quisling provocateur they are ... dead. No pretense.
