Random Quote

By reading what he has last written, just before he recommences his task, the writer will catch the tone and spirit of what he is then saying, and will avoid the fault of seeming to be unlike himself.
-- Anthony Trollope

You know, I know of only one thing that all humanity cries out for:

Liberty.

Though I don't agree with all of his judicial recommendations, Justice William Douglas did say this, "The right to be let alone is indeed the beginning of all freedom."

If a man does not, in any way, injure another man, can there be any crime that requires law to meddle in his liberty?

Jefferson said, "It does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods, or no God. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg." It doesn't matter whether your god is Hindu or Muslim or Christian or Jew or the nearest ashtray - if you do not injure another person or constrain another's liberties, there need be no law for your choices or your behavior. Whether or not I agree with your choices and your behavior, in a civil society I am out of bounds when I am in your business that does no harm to anyone else.

Pushing for liberty is not always easy.
