Thoughts, essays, and writings on Liberty. Written by the heirs of Patrick Henry.

“It is a truism that almost any sect, cult, or religion will legislate its creed into law if it acquires the political power to do so, and will follow it by suppressing opposition, subverting all education to seize early the minds of the young, and by killing, locking up, or driving underground all heretics.”     Robert A. Heinlein

First they came for the gamers…

German legislators have found it necessary to defend the lives of Halo’s Covenant Elites, Killzone’s Helghast soldiers, and countless generic terrorists and Nazi soldiers. “Killing” these “persons” could be punishable by a fine or up to 12 months in jail.

If such a law were ever to pass here, it is one that I would be happy to disobey.
