David Hume: Liberty

“It is seldom that liberty of any kind is lost all at once.  Slavery has so frightful an aspect to men accustomed to freedom that it must steal in upon them by degrees and must disguise itself in a thousand shapes in order to be received.”  David Hume ‘On The Liberty of the Press’  1742
