Why Spiderman still matters 50 years on:
“Doesn't matter what the press says. Doesn't matter what the politicians or the mobs say.Doesn't matter if the whole country decides that something wrong is something right. This nation was founded on one principle above all else: The requirement that we stand up for what we believe, no matter the odds or the consequences. When the mob and the press and the whole world tell you to move, your job is to plant yourself like a tree beside the river of truth, and tell the whole world -- "No, YOU move.” - J. Michael Straczynski, Civil War: The Amazing Spider-Man

Fantastic article by Glenn Fairman in The American Thinker. Not only does he hit the nail squarely on the head, but he does so with breathtakingly eloquent style. Unless we can shake the lobotomised and institutionalised ones out of their stupor then we truly are on the road to serfdom. For they are the many, and we are the few.
