Thoughts


From Justice Louis Brandeis

In a government of law, the existence of the government will
be imperiled if it fails to observe the law Scrupulously.
Our Government is the potent, the omnipresent teacher.
For good or for ill, it teaches the whole people by example.
Crime is contagious. If the Government becomes a lawbreaker,
it breeds contempt for the law: it invites every man to
become a law unto himself: It Invites Anarchy.

From The Yellow Emperor's Classic of Internal Medicine

Those who rebel against the basic rules of the Universe sever
their own roots and ruin their true selves. Yin and Yang,
the two principles in nature, and the four seasons are the
beginning and the end of everything, and they are also
the cause of life and death. Those who disobey the laws of
the Universe will give rise to calamities and visitations,
while those who follow the laws of the Universe remain free
from dangerous illness, for they are the ones who have
obtained Tao, the Right Way.

And Murders Itself. There Never Has Been A Democracy, Yet,
That Did Not Eventually Commit Suicide.
