Quote of the Day - loving servitude

A QOTD while I have my coffee and gather data on the news I missed while at Kelley's Island filling my quota of deer.

This quote is quite scary to me in terms of the last four words....

"Only a large-scale popular movement toward decentralization and self-help can arrest the present tendency toward statism... A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced, because they love their servitude. To make them love it is the task assigned, in present-day totalitarian states, to ministries of propaganda, newspaper editors and schoolteachers." ~ Aldous Huxley
