Can you see where this is headed? Is it not brilliant in its subtlety?

Incrementalism has proved depressingly effective as a tool for getting most people to quietly surrender their rights piecemeal. For gradually habituating them to an ever-diminishing circle of liberty. When the circle finally closes and their rights no longer exist at all, they hardly notice – because by that time, most of their 
rights have already been taken.
The final surrender is met with a shrug rather than a scream of outrage.

GO READ THE REST HERE
