“For many years now I have not always said in public what I think in private…I expect the number of things about which we cannot speak to grow…it is dangerous in these thought-policed times even to make such a confession…Freedom of speech and thought…are very delicate and easily smashed…Watching our current elite’s treatment of liberty is like watching a baboon carrying a priceless Ming vase across a stone-paved floor”
