Humorous, yet Sad

The greatest error a democracy can commit is to forget its liberties. To allow that which they have fought for to fade into oblivion, through legislation, authoritarianism, or neglect, is intolerable.

This link, while attempting to be funny, also highlights what could be a growing problem. What happens when you no longer recognize the right to vote? What happens when you are allowed to be led blindly down alleys you have no clue as to their end?

I hope that this link was humorous, that all participants were prepped for their roles in the farce. I doubt that this is true, however, and that makes it all the more disheartening.
