Who was it that said..Those willing to sacrifice a little Liberty to gain a little security, will gain neither and lose both.

I heard it was a misquote..

“Those who would give up Essential Liberty, to purchase a little Temporary safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety" is, I believe, the correct quote but it is often quoted as, "Who give up liberty for safety, deserve neither"

This expression seems to have mutated over time. Respectfully Quoted: A Dictionary of Quotations (1989) cites it as:

Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.

People are going to people.
Maybe one day.

In the mean time, this looks amusing

Hope you're well Seer.

That looks awesome. Definitely watching that. Kilgrave in another role. This time he's a demon. Not a huge jump.

With that said, I can tell you from experience..you don't want Satan behind you. Face it straight on..

I like to think people are pretty keen. It is just their attention that has been hijacked.

Thanks hon. I'm doing much better. Mays are always difficult for me. For some reason certain months come to call without fail.

Did you watch The Magicians? Also really good.

It's the terror of knowing what the world is about
Watching some good friends screaming
"Let me out!"
