If people think that they have authority over me because I took a few karate
lessons, and they're 'sort of like cops', I want to see their badges.
If people think I deserve to have my ears tortured or even permanently damaged
because of something I've supposedly done, I want a judge and jury to say
that in a court of law.
That's it, that's all...
"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be
the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under
omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep,
his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our
own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of

Game of Death: France's Shocking TV Experiment
- Talk about showing people
their evil side...
"The Game of Death
is an adaptation of an infamous experiment conducted
by a team led by Yale University psychologist Stanley Milgram in the 1960s.
In order to test people's obedience to authority figures, the scientists demanded
that subjects administer increasingly strong electric shocks to other participants
if they answered questions incorrectly. The people delivering the shocks,
however, didn't know that the charges were fake — the volunteers on the other
end of the room were actors pretending to suffer agonizing pain. The point
was to see how many people would continue following orders to mete out torture."
"They plainly did not know how to treat me, but behaved like persons who
are underbred. In every threat and in every compliment there was a blunder;
for they thought that my chief desire was to stand the other side of that
stone wall. I could not but smile to see how industriously they locked the
door on my meditations, which followed them out again without let or hindrance,
and they were really all that was dangerous. As they could not reach me,
they had resolved to punish my body; just as boys, if they cannot come at
some person against whom they have a spite, will abuse his dog. I saw that
the State was half-witted, that it was timid as a lone woman with her silver
spoons, and that it did not know its friends from its foes, and I lost all
remaining respect for it, and pitied it. ~ Henry David Thoreau

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
