The Law and the Lawless – Are We Barbarians?
David Mizner on Daily Kos has a very thought-provoking article where he raises some timely and important questions ALL Americans need to confront in: Don’t Apologize, Greenwald. Don’t Back Down. Here he steps up to support Glenn Greenwald’s efforts to confront the criminal conduct of this country and its leaders, as he says:
“But I think he chose his words with utmost care. They were designed to expose in stark terms the shaky moral and legal footing of the U.S’s claim that it can basically do whatever the hell it wants in the name of FIGHTINGEVIL.
And he should be able to do so without progressives claiming hysterically and dishonestly that he’s “comparing” Obama to OBL. Even mass murderers have rights, and even the United States is bound by international law, or should be.”
As someone that also supports Glenn Greenwald’s strong critique of “American exceptionalism” this is an issue that needs to be emphasized on this Report.
Here is another interesting link with the following excerpt about the interview of Lew Rockwell: 200. Rule of Law? We Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Rule of Law – Brian Wilson interviews Lew Rockwell on WSPD
Government is not exempt from moral law. Murder, kidnapping, theft, prison, torture, execution, assassinations, corruption of judges, and telling the big lies followed by cover up are all business as usual for our elective dictatorship regime. Rather than baying at the moon and dancing in the streets painted blue, white and red, over what might have been the take down of Osama bin Laden, more Americans should get skeptical about government blather. Most may not really want liberty, but thinking minorities accomplish everything. Ron Paul’s newest book Liberty Defined gives us the unstoppable weapon – the truth.
These are the kinds of issues that we think need to be emphasized. Why? Because what goes around ALWAYS comes around.
