Kudos to Glenn Greenwald

First sign of the Apocalypse: I agree with something Glenn Greenwald wrote:

For as long as I’ll live, I’ll never understand how people want to vest in the Government the power to criminalize particular viewpoints it dislikes, will never understand the view that it’s better to try to suppress adverse beliefs than to air them, and will especially never understand people’s failure to realize that endorsing this power will, one day, very likely result in their own views being criminalized when their political enemies (rather than allies) are empowered.

It is little signs like these that remind me that, whatever disagreements I have with those on the Left or on the Far Right, there remain many principles upon which we can agree.
