Anaesthetic for the brain

Nice perspective on the erosion of civil liberties here in the UK by John Kampfner in The Independent, even if he is flogging his new book.
If you haven't got time to read it all, he says: 'We have elevated private freedoms, especially the freedom to earn and spend money, over public freedoms, such as democratic participation and accountability and free expression. I call the thirst for material comfort the ultimate anaesthetic for the brain.'
