Liberal Society vs Open Society

There was once a notion that a liberal society would be an open society,
but that door has shut some time back as its activists have discovered that the only way to have an open society is to close the door on any populist dissent. Their kind of liberalism is notoriously unpopular and cannot be sustained without control of the media, regular editions of Two Minute Hate and the baton and the prison cell. The "I disagree with you but will die to defend your right to speak" society is all but dead, and it has been replaced by the "I disagree with you and will sentence you to prison" society. -- The Prisoner by Daniel Greenfield
