“I think the next battle is going to be demanding those rights back, every single one of those rights we’ve given away in this emergency legislation.. I want every last one of them back, and I don’t want them ever taken away again.”
Peter Whittle referred to them as liberties rather than rights.
Neither mentioned it (nobody ever does), but one of those lost liberties was the freedom to simply sit in a pub and drink a beer and smoke a cigarette.
It is perhaps the least of freedoms, but it’s the least of freedoms that matter most, because they measure the true depth of what has been lost. If you lose this freedom, you have lost all freedom. And we have lost all freedom.
And until we regain that freedom, we will never regain any other freedom.
