It is a grave error to suppose that a dictatorship rules a nation by means of strict, rigid laws which are obeyed and enforced with rigorous, military precision. Such a rule would be evil, but almost bearable; men could endure the harshest edicts, provided these edicts were known, specific and stable; it is not the known that breaks men’s spirits, but the unpredictable. A dictatorship has to be capricious; it has to rule by means of the unexpected, the incomprehensible, the wantonly irrational; it has to deal not in death, but in sudden death; a state of chronic uncertainty is what men are psychologically unable to bear.

~Ayn Rand [Alissa Rosenbaum] (1905-1982), Novelist and Philosopher

Liberty versus Slavery, Human versus Thing by Bob Wallace

I came back from a visit to Washington this week with one overwhelming impression: US thinking on the Middle East is going through a profound revolution. Public opinion is beginning to rebel against the failed policies of the Bush administration - and against their enormous costs in money, human casualties, and chaos.

There is an alarming trend taking place in America; the inadequate training in the area of “Law and Rights” that our Police seem to be getting these days. Or, if they are being properly trained, they are choosing to ignore it.

Do you know the Bill of Rights?

 . . . whoever desires liberty should understand these vital facts, viz.: 1. That every man who puts money in the hands of a ‘government’ (so called), puts into its hands a sword which will be used against himself, to extort more money from him, and also to keep him in subjection to its arbitrary will. 2. That those who will take his money, without his consent, in the first place, will use it for his further robbery and enslavement, if he presumes to resist their demands in the future.~Lysander Spooner (1808-1887), American Philosopher, Legal Scholar
