"unless we all conform, unless we follow our leaders blindly,
there is no possible way we can remain free."
- maj. frank burns

sounds remarkably like the arguments bush&co have made lately that dissent is unpatriotic and that disagreement with the war in iraq serves to weaken, not strengthen, our country. funny, but i thought the right to dissent and disagreement with our leaders is what made our country strong and free in the first place.

"i disapprove of what you say, but i will defend to the death your right to say it."
- voltaire, a.k.a. françois marie arouet (1694–1778)
