фашизм на марше - 2

Imagine a society in which a citizen must petition the government for permission to meet with his fellow citizens. Imagine further that such requests must be made at least three days in advance of the requested meeting, and that the government has unbridled discretion to determine who may meet with whom, and about what they might speak. Such extreme preconditions to speech might not be out of place in Oceania, the fictional dystopian superstate in George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four. The First Amendment to the United States Constitution, however, ensures that preconditions like these have no place in the United States of America.

Стаканчик, или 135 лет спустя

25 декабря того же года в знак протеста против тюремного режима Мышкин бросил тарелку в смотрителя Соколова. За это он был предан военному суду и приговорён к смертной казни. Расстрелян 7 февраля 1885 года.
