None Really

With great power, comes great responsibility.

That applies to the power of freedom as well. If your facebook page says "Political Views: none" but can proclaim loudly which Bollywood actor you will grow up to become, or whether you're a bloodsucking vampire or an evil genius, there is something wrong there.

There will be no foreboding. There will be no chimes, or bells in a stormy night. We will be overpowered silently. Worse perhaps, we will ask to be overpowered.
