Character assassination? Was it not you that called me a liar? I'm not sure how you think I wandered so far off of it since the documents I cite support the full statement. What you apparently think is proper is to take a fragment, distort it and then, for some reason use that as evidence that I am seeking to deceive people, that is what you are attempting to say, is it not?
You have yet to tell me, though I have asked, what the full statement means in the context of the entire message or even in the context of the paragraph or what you think it means.
"So long as the people do not care to exercise their freedom, those who wish to tyrannize will do so; for tyrants are active and ardent...to put shackles upon sleeping men.
