Hope will be the only thing you have.

The European Union and Canada welcome the United States in the formation of the new Dark Age, where our oppressors are not nomadic raiders and manor lords, but bureaucrats and lawyers.

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would 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 their own conscience.

– C.S. Lewis
