Abridgment of the Freedom of the People

“I believe there are more instances of
the abridgment of the freedom of the people
by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power
than by violent and sudden usurpations.”

James Madison, speech in the Virginia Convention [June 16, 1788]

source: Sixteenth Edition Familiar Quotations by John Bartlett [1820-1905] general editor Justin Kaplan

I think I’m inclined to assign the lable, “Political Correctness” the the abridgment of the freedom of the people as well as Congress representing the president rather than its Constituents.
