definition of cauldron - a situation of tension and stress

All hail the law that place thought and freedom of expression - one of the five pillars of democracy – inside a witch’s cauldron. Shudder the thought!

As Robert Burns said in his poem, "Here's a Health to them that's Awa'":

Here's a health to them that's awa;
Here's a health to Tammie, the Norlan' laddie,
That lives at the lug o' the law!

Here's freedom to them that would read,
Here's freedom to them that would write,

There's none ever fear'd that the truth should be heard,
But they whom the truth would indict.


Note: interesting debate on the above issue over at
