Incrementalism and Living Lies
An essay titled Here’s How it Will be Done… discusses Americans’ acceptance of an incremental diminishment of their rights, with an eye on gun rights.
I’d like to point out that this incremental diminishment of Americans’ inalienable rights goes much deeper than simply gun rights, and with this in mind point to an Alexander Solzhenitsyn essay, first published in 1974, titled Live Not By Lies. The two essays are not without close parallels, and Solzhenitsyn’s essay is penetrating.
