On the UCAS-ONLINE Trixcast 'The Vista', Barbara Godot interviews Mr. Mark Ryan of The Normalcy Party…

"So, Mr. Ryan… you say that you would favor mandatory registration for all magic users. Some would say that this is a form of 'first step' to internment."

"Don't be silly, Barbara. I don't think anyone has rounded up doctors, and they are stringently licensed. Or hairstylists, and they are regulated for public health and safety. Or perhaps even automobile drivers, and they can get a licence very easily."

"Yes, but your detractors would say that this is something those people -do-, which is regulated, while you are trying to regulate what people -are-. What do you say to that?"

"Well, that's a very good question, Barbara. And to answer, I have to trust that the American People, long after the explosive and dangerous appearence of magic, are not interested in unregulated magic, a genetic quirk that sets some people above the rest. I must trust that the American People trust in the spirit of the constitution of the United States of America, where All Men are created equal.. and if thats not the case anymore, then we do our best to -make- it so. Thank you."
