Freedom is Slavery

In an astonishing Orwellian moment, Rudy Nine-Eleven made this statement in 1994:

What we don't see is that freedom is not a concept in which people can do anything they want, be anything they can be ... Freedom is about authority. Freedom is about the willingness of every single human being to cede to lawful authority a great deal of discretion about what you do.

And this is the man who would be president?
