Dad: "Protection Of The Innocent Requires A Legal System That Lets Many Guilty People Walk"

Alan: Ignorant of Adams' democracy, proponents of Fascism proclaim that Reality itself can be made safer than God intended it to be.

And so, "the people" -- ever eager to be led to safety -- subscribe to the destruction of their own freedom.

Enthralled by fascism, this destruction begins with an interlocking matrix of policies that are quick to condemn and -- often -- faster to punish.

To guarantee the survival of innocence by letting many guilty people "walk" is a trade-off sheeple will not tolerate.

500 years before Christ, Lao Tzu observed that "the profoundest truths are paradoxical."

Most people, obsessed with "common sense" -- even in times that require "uncommon sense" -- contemn the complexity of paradox (and other forms of ironic learning).

"Americans are fucked. They've been bought off. And they come real cheap: a few million dirt bikes, camcorders, microwaves, cordless phones, digital watches, answering machines, jet skis and sneakers with lights in 'em. You say you want a few items back from the Bill of Rights? Just promise the doofuses new gizmos."  George Carlin

"Shopping and buying - and getting and having - comprise the Great American Addiction. No one is immune. When the underclass riots in this country, they don't kill policemen and politicians, they steal merchandise. How embarrassing."  George Carlin

They debated the NAFTA trade bill for a long time: should we sign it or not? Either way the people get fucked. Trade always exists for the traders. Any time you hear businessmen debating "which policy is better for Americans" don't bend over.  George Carlin
