Thought for tonight

News that Sue Bradford's egregious Bill empowering police intrusion into NZ homes has passed on first reading by 70-51 suggests this thought for the night, from Victor Hugo's Cromwell:
...when a yoke bends Liberty's bold brow
A tyrant is less burdensome when small.
Yet another small example of Hannah Arendt's great lesson of the Twentieth Century -- of the banality of evil.

Hat tip Return to Reason.
