For the sake of those of us with limited access to the Internet at the
moment (say, we're behind a corporate firewall, or our browser has just
exploded) or simply don't like clicking on mystery links until we have some
idea of what the link is about, could you give us a two sentence summary
that explains why it's relevant to Python?

Ah, the definition of a police state: where ordinary people, whether
breaking the law or not, are forced by fear of death to obey the police at
all times, whether the police are acting legally or not.
