Bill Of Rights Day

Today is Bill of Rights Day in the USA. The Bill of Rights is 220 years old today. It is in danger! We are not a police state, yet....

I believe this is relevant to dollmaking because the Bill of Rights guarantees all Americans the right to express themselves. It wasn't too long ago that the artwork of Hans Bellmer was declared degenerate by the Nazis in Germany, and he was forced to flee to France in 1938. That is what can happen in a police state. If you give up even one Right, then you essentially give them all up, because they will all topple like dominos.
