Don’t Allow Your Rights to Slip Away

The Bill of Rights can withstand a hostile political class if it’s supported by a culture that genuinely wants to be shielded from the depredations of government officials. If, instead, people come to see the Bill of Rights as a barrier to their efforts to harm their opponents, its component amendments will be reinterpreted or overturned so that they don’t get in the way of political warriors sticking it to each other. – J. D. Tuccille

It’s troubling enough that there are politicians who openly undermine rights and the criminal justice system, but when the people start going along with it, history tells us terrible times follow.

Oh, I forgot, history isn’t very high on the importance list in education. Given some of the dark paths mankind has gone down, it should be number one.

Remember, what power you give the government today, will come back to haunt you tomorrow.
