Now, the premise of this article is overdone. We've heard this a thousand times, "We're living in an Orwellian society". Unfortunately, the effect of this is to reduce the impact of that statement. Instead of actively analyzing things, people just roll there eyes. However, this article does a great deal to redeem itself from that fact. It's clear and well written, and instead of being sensastionalist, it very clearly works to discuss the points. 1984 had this. We resemble it in this way. Moreover, it keeps to the subject.
So this one is a valuable resource to keep stuff straight. Useful connections are drawn, handy reminders are put forth. But this isn't an article you use to convert those who don't think this way. Read it, share it with your back-patting-like-thinking crowd, but find better ways to express things to people who don't agree with you.
Guns can no longer be employed against an oppresive government. They are expensive and tightly controlled. One tool that you can fight with is a tool that they have more resources for, but anyone can use. Propoganda. Anyone can create and distrubute it; it's cheap, not controlled. Yet.
