From the Cyberia mailing list (worth your time, yes), a timely quote:

“‘Emergencies’ have always been the pretext on which the safeguards of individual liberty have been eroded and once they are suspended it is not difficult for anyone who has assumed such emergency powers to see to it that the emergency will persist.”
~ F.A. Hayek, Law, Legislation and Liberty, vol. 3, p 124
