Truth is scarier than fiction

In less than three weeks, we’ll start going to the theaters to watch the latest Star Wars installment. If the trailers and Lucas interviews are any indication, we’ll see the Republic give sweeping powers to “protect” them, to the very person they are most afraid of (they just don’t know it).

And then we’ll come home, and continue to do the very same thing in our real lives. In smaller steps, like the frog in a pot, where the heat is turned up so gradually it never realizes it’s being cooked, until too late.

John Ashcroft is Darth Vader.
