In the end, the law will prevail and all governments who ordered confinement and suppression of the fundamental right to get out of your house and travel will be found guilty.

Stephanie Buck writes about the treatment of the “social parasite” Joseph Brodsky.
In 1963, Russian poet Joseph Brodsky was seized and sent to a mental institution… Hospital workers pumped him with tranquilizers and repeatedly woke him during the night. He was given cold baths and wrapped in wet canvas that shrank and cut his skin while drying.
