12 12 2011, London

I found this, today, quoted at the beginning of Michael Hardt and Antonio Negri's Commonwealth (2009):

"People only ever have the degree of freedom that their audacity wins from fear."

-- Stendhal, Vie de Napoléon

Glad to see we have all been thinking the same things for centuries...
Sad to see it still needs to be said...
