Do watch this documentary - UK slow boil

If you haven't seen the documentary Taking Liberties
(http://www.play.com/DVD/DVD/4-/3436614/Taking-Liberties/Product.html)
then do.

I can only define it as a clear example of how we are being slow boiled.

Obviously we jump up and react when thrown into hot water. But slow
boil, well like frogs we just sit there...

For example - in current climate, slavery could not be abolished as it
was in the past, women could not get votes as they petitioned for in the
past, and the poll tax would not be stopped. Do you see now?

Democracy and liberty are only useful to the normal citizen if they
allow that citizen to voice dissatisfaction with the leadership. When
you take that away...its authoritarian, with perhaps the ability to put
a X in a box you so choose. Nice.
