Back in 1967 English actor and writer Peter Ustinov said this:
“For centuries, men were punished for having disobeyed. At [the Nuremberg Trials], for the first time, men were punished for having obeyed. The repercussions of this precedent are only now beginning to make themselves felt.”
Indeed, we are now at the place where disobedience and questioning authority are clearly virtues and not vices. This is a must as tyranny in the West is on the rise. And just how does tyranny work? We have had enough tyrants of late to know the answer to that question. Above all, they cut off the free flow of information. The State must control all information and it alone will decide what the masses are allowed to hear and see and read.
What is freedom of expression? Without the freedom to offend, it ceases to exist. -Salman Rushdie
