Make it so!

Like Vindico, it seems that I am Jean-Luc Picard (and not, thank fuck, Wesley "Fucking Smug Irritating Twat" Crusher)...
Which Fantasy/SciFi Character Are You?An accomplished diplomat who can virtually do no wrong, you sometimes know it is best to rely on the council of others while holding the reins.
There are some words which I have known since I was a schoolboy. "With the first link, the chain is forged. The first speech censored, the first thought forbidden, the first freedom denied, chains us all irrevocably." These words were uttered by Judge Aaron Satie—as a wisdom, and warning. The first time any man's freedom is trodden on, we're all damaged.

And I am tempted to replace my P J O'Rourke tagline with that quote.
"With the first link, the chain is forged. The first speech censored, the first thought forbidden, the first freedom denied, chains us all irrevocably."

Damn straight: what a pity that so few people seem to understand this...

... and that the "few" who do get it are socialist thought fascists. Too bad so few on our side get it.

I had come out as Jean-Luc also.

A pattern, p'raps?
