Take Note...IIIn Cryptography teasers, a phrase or expressions has been encoded in some way (frequently by replacing letters with other letters). You need to figure out the encoding method and then decode the message to find the answer.
Decode the following using a Caesar Shift cipher.

HintEncoded with a shift of +5.
Answer"We live in oppressive times. We have, as a nation, become our own thought police; but instead of calling the process by which we limit our expression of dissent and wonder 'censorship,' we call it 'concern for commercial viability.'"
- David Mamet
A Caesar Shift cipher is done by simply shifting the value of a letter down to another letter. For example: a shift of +5 changes "a" to "f", then every other letter follows suit.
