An excerpt from Glenn Becks' novel, The Overton Window

"Governments elevate men into power, and men who seek power are prone to corruption. It spreads like a disease, then, corruption on courrption, and sooner or later the end result is always a slide into tyranny. That's the way it's always been. And so this government of the United Steas was brilliantly designed to keep that weakness of human nature in check, but it required the people to participate daily, to be vigilant, and they have not. It demanded that they behave as though their governemnt was their servant, but they have not. In their silence the people of the United Staes have spoken. While they slept the servant has become their master."

What can I possible add to that except prepare, prepare, prepare.

I think that is the key statement & can sum up the book nicely.
