Hosanna! Where’s Your Donkey?

palm-sundayRejoice greatly, Daughter Zion!
Shout, Daughter Jerusalem!

 righteous and victorious,
lowly and riding on a donkey,
 on a colt, the foal of a donkey.

One of the main tools at the discretion of a totalitarian state is the issuance of licenses for every imaginable act. And so it goes.
