I've decided I shall diminish...

...though my name isn't Galadriel.

Looking at the current political climate it's now unsafe to say anything over an open channel. (F-List protected, encrypted, or otherwise.) Therefore I will restrict my posts to fantasy, philosophy, and all things except politics and/or government.

We're entering some dark times. Have your papers ready, up to date, and upon you.

Me? I'm just going to work for a living for a while, fix things, and maybe try and make some art in my life.

Fuck that noise.
Silence is Death.

The dark times are the ones that call for us to burn brighter than ever.

Frankly I'm afraid. I have a daughter that depends on funds from state resources and there's so many things that someone could do to screw us.

I don't want to put my daughter into a situation that will leave her unable to cope in the future for some reason.

Standing up for her rights (as well as mine) unfortunately comes with a cost. I'm not sure if I'm ready to pay that yet.

The problem is that this decision calls for "Old Entish" thinking and that doesn't come quickly...

I think you're being just a tad alarmist...
...though I can see where you might be getting justifiably nervous. Though our leaders may be trampling on yet more of our civil liberties, they haven't completely won as yet - and if enough of us speak out and vote and donate and do what we can, they may not win at all.

Re: I think you're being just a tad alarmist...
I speak out person to person. I'm just not sure if I can justify speaking out publicly. (See other post about being afraid.)

Definitely requires more thought...

I agree with thatcrazycajun - I think you may be overreacting just a tadge.

There's a very lively and entirely "alternative" conversation going on in a pagan mailing list I'm part of; it's been going on for weeks, but the thought police haven't come for any of my friends yet - nor for me. The various Occupy movements are still at it - they just aren't getting any more attention from the mainstream media (almost all of which is owned by the 1%, of course).

I understand your concerns, but I believe that keeping a low profile is exactly what "they" want us to do. If, instead, we each speak up as loudly as we can, it'll be harder and harder for "them" to silence all of us. Write protest songs!
