Many conservatives, including but not limited to Mark Levin (Youtube vid), Jonah Goldberg, and Mark Steyn, have often made the argument that if tyranny ever came to the United States, it wouldn’t be the kind of tyranny once experienced in Communist eastern Europe or Nazi Germany, but rather a soft tyranny where government dictates would come in the form of paternalistic mandates implemented “for our own good” and people would be controlled not by a heavy-handed police state, but by more pleasant distractions.

One post that caught my eye this morning isn’t an article, but a series of drawings comparing the fears expressed by George Orwell and Aldous Huxley.  The short version of the story:  Huxley won.
