Despotism always comes bearing the name "Public Safety"

THE NEW HEADQUARTERS FOR THE DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND (DHS) WILL BE BUILT IN THE WASHINGTON METRO AREA.  THIS SPRAWLING 173 ACRE FACILITY WILL HOUSE SOME 14,000 EMPLOYEES ALL DEDICATED TO KEEPING AMERICANS SAFE NO MATTER THE COST IN DOLLARS OR IN PERSONAL FREEDOMS AND LIBERTY.  ONE MUST ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT DESPOTISM SOMETIMES COMES SILENTLY IN THE NIGHT, NOT LIKE THE ROAR OF SOME INVADING ARMY, BUT WITH THE CUNNING AND STEALTH OF OFTEN WELL-MEANING MEN WITH NO HIGHER GOAL THAN THAT OF "PUBLIC SAFETY" AND SECURITY.  BUT  ONRUSHING EVENTS CAN TURN THAT LOFTY GOAL OF PUBLIC SAFETY INTO A STATE DESIGNED NOT ONLY TO KEEP ALIEN ENEMIES AT BAY, BUT ONE THAT CRUSHES INDIVIDUAL LIBERTIES IN AN OVER-ZEALOUS ATTEMPT TO INSURE PEACE AND DOMESTIC TRANQUILLITY.  A ROAD THAT WILL ALWAYS LEAD TO SOME FORM OF DESPOTISM.  THERE IS A FITTING OLD SAYING, "THE ROAD TO HELL IS PAVED WITH GOOD INTENTIONS".
