A Democratic Government That Respects No Limits On Its Own Power Is A
Ticking Time Bomb, Just Waiting To Destroy The Very Rights It Was
Created To Protect In The First Place.

And Yet More From Thomas Jefferson

If Once The People Become Inattentive To The Public Affairs, You And I,
And Congress And Assemblies, Judges and Governors, Shall All Become
Like Wolves. It Seems To Be The law Of Our General Nature, In Spite Of
Individual Exceptions; And Experience Declares That Man Is The Only
Animal Which Devours His Own Kind; For I Can Apply No Milder Term To The
Governments Of Europe, And To The General PREY Of The Rich On The Poor.

More From Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr.

The Nazi Regime Represented Not A Unique Evil In World History But Rather

Trends: Nationalism And Socialism. We Know Both ALL TOO WELL.

From Hal Moore

When The Blood Of Any War Soaks Your Clothes And Covers Your Hands,
And Soldiers Die In Your Arms, Every Breath, Forever More, Becomes

From Alan Barth

Free Men Can Never Rely Upon Courts Alone For The Preservation Of Their
Freedom. Courts Can Give Warning Of Danger. But They Are Just Really
Powerless To Protect Us From Ourselves. They Can Remind Us Of Our True
Heritage. But They Cannot Preserve That Heritage For Us.

From Cathy Young

The Inhuman System That Inspired The Orwell Masterpiece Has Crumbled.
But Doublethink, Newspeak, Thought-Policing And Virtuous Hatred Are
Eternal Temptations Of The Human Soul, Even In The Freest Of Societies.
We Have Met Big Brother, AND HE IS US!!.

From Peter Dale Scott

I Do Believe That International Public Opinion, When It Becomes Powerful
Enough, Will Become The Most Effective Restraint To The Excesses And
Follies Of Particular Governments.

You Can Only Have Power Over People So Long As You Do Not Take
Everything Away From Them. But When You Have Robbed A Man Of
Everything He Is No Longer In Your Power - He Is FREE Again.

The only Freedom which deserves the Name, is that of pursuing our own good
in our own way, so long as we do not attempt to deprive others of theirs,
or impede their efforts to obtain it.
