Jacob Less, the king of the hobos, gets jumped by OPP near Brantford, Ontario.

The Emperor’s New Clothes: The Naked Truth About the American Police State

It’s vogue, trendy and appropriate to look to dystopian literature as a harbinger of what we’re experiencing at the hands of the government.

Yet there are also older, simpler, more timeless stories—folk tales and fairy tales—that speak just as powerfully to the follies and foibles in our nature as citizens and rulers alike that give rise to tyrants and dictatorships.
