"Politics is perhaps the only profession for which no preparation is thought necessary [so long as they can win the election. Imagine if doctors or accountants were employed or driver's licences awarded this way! Therefore it is not at all surprising that government is as inefficient as it is and often its laws, departments and policies produce more harm in the long run than if they had done nothing, leaving the solution to the individuals involved, who understand it better. This is yet another reason to strictly limit the powers of government to only the enforcement of freedom and property rights, as libertarians promote, rather than the control of everything within a country, just as you would limit the powers of inexperienced doctors or unqualified drivers!]" - Robert Louis Stevenson

[Quote No.30937] Need Area: Friends > General
"The Bill of Rights: Due Process of Law - One of the most deeply rooted principles in American jurisprudence is the concept of due process of law, which is enshrined in the Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution: 'No person shall... be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law.' Due process of law actually stretches back to the year 1215, when the great barons of England extracted an admission from their king that his powers over the citizenry were not unlimited but instead were limited by fundamental principles of fairness and justice. Included among the restrictions on power to which King John acceded in the Magna Carta — the Great Charter — was a prohibition against the exercise of arbitrary seizure of people or their property by government officials: 'No free man shall be seized or imprisoned, or stripped of his rights or possessions, or outlawed or exiled, or deprived of his standing in any other way, nor will we proceed with force against him, or send others to do so, except by the lawful judgement of his equals or by the law of the land.' Over the centuries, that phrase — 'the law of the land' — gradually evolved into the phrase 'due process of law,' the same phrase our American ancestors insisted be made part of the Constitution through the adoption of the Fifth Amendment. Why government? - In the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson set forth the rationale for the establishment of government in a society: to secure the fundamental, inherent, and preexisting rights of the people. The idea was that the monopoly force of government was needed to suppress the likes of murderers, rapists, robbers, and other violent criminals. Government’s job would be to bring such malefactors to justice and impose punishment on them. However, as Englishmen had learned throughout the centuries, both before and after Magna Carta, the matter of criminal justice was not so easy. For history and experience had shown that when government (i.e., the king) was vested with the unlimited power to arrest, incarcerate, and punish violent offenders, always and inevitably such power had been misused against the innocent, especially those who dared to criticize or challenge government policies or practices. For example, without restrictions on power, the king would simply send his soldiers to the home of a government critic. They would then arrest him, incarcerate him, and punish him. The idea behind the 'law of the land' provision in Magna Carta, which has been described as the cornerstone of English liberties, was to require the king to follow certain procedures as a prerequisite to seizing and punishing a person for a crime he had supposedly committed. Thus, over the centuries English and American courts gradually defined 'due process of law' as a set of procedural rights or guarantees to which every person whom the government accused of a crime is entitled... Notice and hearing:- The core procedural requirements of due process of law were 'notice' and 'hearing.' An accused had the right, the courts held, to be advised of the nature of the offenses for which he was being charged. That is, the government would be prohibited from simply taking a person into custody on mere suspicion that he was a criminal type or prosecuting him without formally telling him what he was being prosecuted for. Instead, the government would have to formally advise him of the specific charges against him, so that he would then be able to prepare his defense. That’s the idea behind a grand jury indictment — to formally advise the accused of the exact nature of the offense against him. That’s why our ancestors incorporated that aspect of due process in the Fifth Amendment — 'No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury' — and the Sixth Amendment — 'In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall... be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation.' The other essential part of due process was 'hearing' — the right of the accused to be heard, which meant, in a criminal case, a trial. Not just any trial, however, because Englishmen had learned hard lessons from, for example, Star Chamber judicial proceedings that involved secret, arbitrary, and unjust verdicts and judgments. Other due-process guarantees:- The English common law gradually developed other aspects of due-process guarantees in criminal cases. For example, if an accused was forced to defend himself against experienced government lawyers, obviously the trial could easily degenerate into a sham proceeding — that is, one that might have the trappings of a just trial but whose ending would be practically preordained owing to the unlikelihood that a layman in court could successfully defeat experienced prosecutors. Therefore, to provide the accused with a reasonable chance to challenge the charges against him, procedural due process came to recognize the crucial importance of allowing the accused to retain a lawyer to fight government prosecutors on his behalf. That’s why the right to counsel was enshrined in the Sixth Amendment: 'In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall ... have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence.' Other due-process protections were included in the Sixth Amendment. For example, the amendment guarantees the right of trial by jury, which protects the right of the accused to be judged by ordinary people in the community rather than by the judge presiding over the case. Also, government witnesses against the accused have to be brought into court to face the accused and subject themselves to cross-examination by the accused or his lawyer. The accused also has the right to use the subpoena power of the court (i.e., 'compulsory process') to force favorable witnesses to come to court to provide evidence on his behalf. Other procedural protections became an integral part of due process of law even though they were not specifically enumerated in either the Constitution or the Bill of Rights. For example, in every criminal case the government has the burden of proof. What that means is that in the United States, unlike many other countries around the world, the accused is not required to prove his innocence; instead the government is required to prove his guilt by furnishing sufficient, competent, and credible evidence under oath that the accused actually did commit the offense. How much evidence is the government required to furnish to substantiate a finding of guilt? Unlike civil cases, where the burden of proof on the claimant is a 'preponderance of the evidence,' ['balance of probabilities' in some other countries] criminal cases require the government to prove a person’s guilt 'beyond a reasonable doubt.' Thus, at the conclusion of the trial, it is entirely possible that a jury could find a criminal defendant not guilty even if he had not introduced any evidence of his innocence whatsoever. The reason might be that the jury, after hearing and considering all the government’s evidence, might still not be convinced 'beyond a reasonable doubt' of the defendant’s guilt. A correlative due process right involves the 'presumption of innocence,' which means that at the beginning of every criminal trial the accused is considered to be fully and totally innocent — and remains so until the government succeeds in convincing the jury of his guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. A related due-process protection included in the Fifth Amendment is the right of every person to remain silent in the face of a government accusation. That was to ensure that government officials would have to build their case against a person with independent evidence — that is, evidence that was not extracted from the accused, especially through force (e.g., torture). What’s important to recognize is the underlying rationale behind due process of law — that is, why this principle was so important to Englishmen as well as to our Founding Fathers and the Framers [of the U.S. Constitution]: Given the enormous value they placed on people’s lives and liberty and given their recognition of the enormous power of the government, they wanted to ensure that as few innocent people as possible were executed or otherwise punished, even if that meant lots of guilty people went unpunished. The role of habeas corpus:- How are due-process rights protected? That is, what if government officials proceed to arbitrarily arrest and detain people indefinitely without charges or trial... Our English and American ancestors understood that the only effective way to secure the release of people who were wrongfully detained was through a legal process known as habeas corpus, which stretches back to 1679, when Parliament enacted the Habeas Corpus Act and which the Framers later enshrined in the limitation on the powers of Congress in Article 1, Section 9 of the U.S. Constitution: 'The privilege of the Writ of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in Cases of Rebellion or Invasion the public Safety may require it.' Habeas corpus is a process that entitles a person held in custody to file a petition in court formally requesting the court to summon the accused and his custodian to court where the custodian will be required to show the reason he is detaining the petitioner. If the court issues a 'writ of habeas corpus,' a law-enforcement officer serves the writ (i.e., a formal court order) on the custodian, ordering him to bring the detainee to court and to 'show cause' why he is being detained. If the custodian refuses, he is subject to a contempt citation, which means that the judge will order his arrest and detention until he complies with the order of the court. As a practical matter, the writ of habeas corpus forces government officials either to formally charge a prisoner or to release him..." - Jacob Hornberger

[Quote No.30938] Need Area: Friends > General
"Libertarianism is a political philosophy that holds that a person should be free to do whatever he wants in life, as long as his conduct is peaceful. Thus, as long a person doesn’t murder, rape, burglarize, defraud, trespass, steal, or inflict any other act of violence against another person’s life, liberty, or property, libertarians hold that the government should leave him alone. In fact, libertarians believe that a primary purpose of government is to prosecute and punish anti-social individuals who initiate force against others. What are some policy ramifications of what has become known as the libertarian 'non-aggression principle'? People should be free to engage in any economic enterprise without permission or interference from the state. Thus libertarians oppose all occupational licensure laws and all economic regulations of business activity. Libertarians also believe that people have the right to keep whatever they earn and decide for themselves what to do with their own money–spend it, invest it, save it, hoard it, or donate it. This then means, necessarily, that libertarians are ardent advocates of the free market, which is simply a process by which people are interacting peacefully with each other for mutual gain. What are some specific applications of libertarian principles to real-world problems? Education: libertarians call for the complete separation of school and state, which means the repeal of school compulsory-attendance laws and school taxes–that is, the complete end of all governmental involvement in education. This would mean a completely free market in education, in which consumers decide the best educational vehicles for their children and entrepreneurs (both for-profit and charitable) are meeting the demands of the consumers. Social Security: an immediate repeal of Social Security, which is simply a coercive transfer program in which older people are able to steal from young people. Again, people have a right to their own earnings. If a person fails to provide for his retirement, he must rely on the charity and good will of his family, his friends, his church groups, or people in his community. Libertarians believe that it is morally wrong for a person to use the state to take what doesn’t belong to him. Welfare: immediate repeal of all welfare primarily on moral grounds but also on the terribly destructive aspects of government welfare programs. People have a right to their own earnings and no one has the right to take someone else’s money against his will. Moreover, no one is made a better person because the state is taking money from one person in order to give it to another person. Finally, government welfare creates a sense of hopeless dependency on the welfare recipient. Drug laws: the decades-long war on drugs is immoral and has proven to be highly destructive. People have a right to engage in peaceful, self-destructive behavior as long as their conduct is peaceful. Drug addiction should be treated as a social, medical, psychological problem, not a criminal one. Legalizing drugs would immediately put an end to drug lords and drug gangs and the violence associated with the drug war–that is, the burglaries, robberies, thefts, etc. associated with the exorbitant black-market prices that drug users must pay to finance their habits. The IRS and income tax: repeal them and leave people free to keep the fruits of their earnings and decide for themselves how to dispose of their wealth. Gun Control: People have a right to resist the tyranny of their own government and to protect themselves from the violent acts of private criminals. Environment: Governments are the great destroyers of the environment. In fact, most environmental problems can be traced to public, not private, ownership of resources. The solution is to privatize public property to the maximum extent possible. Health Care: the crisis in health care, especially with respect to ever-rising prices, is due to heavy government involvement in health care–Medicare, Medicaid, and licensure laws. These laws and programs should be repealed in favor of a totally free market in health care. Immigration: Libertarians oppose any controls on the free movements of goods and people, both domestically and internationally. People have the right to move and to improve their lives. Foreign Policy: Libertarians oppose involvement in foreign wars as well as all foreign aid. The U.S. government should be limited to protecting the nation from invasion but should stay out of the affairs of other nations. Civil Liberties: Libertarians are firm advocates of the First Amendment and the procedural aspects of due process of law, such as the rights to be protected from unreasonable searches and seizures, and in criminal cases the right to an attorney, notice and hearing, and trial by jury. With the tragic exception of slavery and several minor exceptions, the philosophy on which the United States was founded was, by and large, founded on libertarianism, especially with the ideas in the Declaration of Independence and the limitation on powers in the Constitution. In 1890 America, for example, the following government programs were virtually nonexistent: income taxation, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, economic regulation, occupational licensure, a Federal Reserve System, conscription, immigration controls, and gun control. In the 20th century, the American people abandoned libertarianism in favor of the socialistic welfare state and the controlled or regulated society. Thus, the intellectual and moral battle for the third century of our nation’s existence is between those who favor liberty — libertarians — versus those who favor state control of peaceful activity — 'statists.'

[Quote No.30944] Need Area: Friends > General
"[Keeping informed about politics and economics is a responsibility in a democracy if you want your vote to count for something.] Political scientist Michael Delli Carpini, after analyzing thousands of voter surveys, told the Washington Post that there was 'virtually no relationship' between the political issues that low-knowledge voters said 'matter most to them and the positions of the candidates they voted for on those issues. It was as if their vote was random.' ...Citizens’ ignorance may be increasing as fast as politicians’ spending... Total [U.S.] government spending has increased from $61.9 billion in 1950, or $410 per person, to $2,257 billion in 1994, or $8,681 per person. In inflation-adjusted terms, this is an increase in spending of more than 700 percent. The annual Federal Register has gone from 7,417 pages in 1947 to 69,364 in 1996. The Code of Federal Regulations is now 14 times larger than it was in 1950. The Republican Party platform was 14 times longer in 1996 than it was in 1948. While the amount of citizens’ knowledge about government and politics appears stagnant, the amount of government spending, laws, and regulations has soared... The growth of government is like the spread of a dense jungle, and the average citizen is able to mentally hack his way through less and less of that jungle every year. The larger the government, the more the average citizen and average voter is at the intellectual mercy of his rulers. And the more ignorant the voters, the easier it becomes for politicians to treat people like Pavlovian dogs, simply throwing out some phrase after which the citizen, reflexively, runs to vote more power to the politicians. The only way to presume that citizens’ ignorance of government is irrelevant to democracy is for the government to be so inherently benevolent that people do not even need to know what it is doing. That is, people can ignore the details of government policies — since they are essentially making a choice between two competing political caregivers — in the same way that an infirm person might choose between two nurses competing for hire, with no understanding of the drugs the nurses plan to inject him with. [That is particularly dangerous if the successful nurse will have power over you and access to your money! Therefore the need for limited government as promoted by libertarians.]" - James Bovard

"[When a government decides that it alone knows best and takes the role of a nanny state, it shows its citizens how much it disrespects their intelligence and their finances which fund government's activities.] Of all tyrannies a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims [without their informed consent and approval] may be the most oppressive... This very kindness stings with intolerable insult. To be 'cured' against one’s will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals. [Governments that behave this way, even with the best of intentions, deny their citizens their inalienable human right to freedom of choice and the responsibilty to enjoy or suffer the consequences - learning and maturing in the process, and as such treat them with less than adult human dignity.]" - C.S.

[Quote No.31052] Need Area: Friends > General
"[While all humans are born with equal inalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuits of happiness and property] There is a natural [rather than an hereditary] aristocracy among men [and women]. The grounds of this are virtue and talents. [Political freedom allows this meritocracy and then the results, both good and bad, are the responsibility of each individual, given their nature, nurture, efforts and luck.]" - Thomas Jefferson
(1743 – 1826), He was also the principal author of the Declaration of Independence and the third President of the United States, between 1801 and 1809. He was also a farmer, architect and inventor.

[Quote No.31218] Need Area: Friends > General
"It is therefore most especially in the present democratic times that the true friends of the liberty and the greatness of man ought constantly to be on the alert, to prevent the power of government from lightly sacrificing the private rights of individuals to the general execution of its designs. At such times, no citizen is so obscure that it is not very dangerous to allow him to be oppressed; no private rights are so unimportant that they can be surrendered with impunity to the caprices of a government." - Alexis de Tocqueville
From his book, 'Democracy in America', (1835).

[Quote No.31227] Need Area: Friends > General
"All politics is local. [that is - it is about self-interest and how the government effects each voter. If a government's powers aren't limited, for instance by a strictly enforced constitution that limits government powers, voters come to demand more and more from the government until each person's life becomes more about how much government help they are able to get than how much they have been able to grow and do themselves through individual effort and responsibility. This compares with adolescents asking for more and more from their parents over time, rather than less, and thereby never becoming all they could be, because they don't have to take personal responsibility for developing, through facing and overcoming difficulties, self-esteem and the skills and capacities to meet their own needs and dreams and become productive, respected members of the community.]" - Tip O’Neill

"Communism has never come to power in a country that was not disrupted by war or corruption, or both. [This is true of any form of statism (all-powerful government), because it is only when people are desperate that they are willing to give up most of their individual freedom and responsibility for the hope of order and help from a big, benevolent, paternal government. Like most decisions made in desperation, this bargain works out badly in the long run, if not sooner.]" - John F. Kennedy

[Quote No.31250] Need Area: Friends > General
" 'Rights' are a moral concept — the concept that provides a logical transition from the principles guiding an individual's actions to the principles guiding his relationship with others — the concept that preserves and protects individual morality in a social context — the link between the moral code of a man and the legal code of a society, between ethics and politics. Individual rights are the means of subordinating society to moral law." - Ayn Rand
Philosopher and author. From her book, 'The Virtue of Selfishness' (1964).

[Quote No.31267] Need Area: Friends > General
"Six Steps for When You Really Blow It: Everyone's done it. Missed that big meeting. Didn't finish that proposal on time. Forgot that interview (or anniversary). Whatever it was, you screwed up - and you know it. So how do you deal with the fallout? Here are six steps to follow: --1. Be proactive. If you realize you screwed up before your boss/friend/spouse/whoever does, tell them about it as soon as possible. Ignoring it can be taken as either being too chicken to fess up or, even worse, not caring. --2. Admit your fault. Communicate clearly that you know what you did, and that you understand the repercussions of your error. People want to feel that you understand why they're mad - that you're not just trying to get out of trouble. --3. Be extra hard on yourself. If they see that you're really sorry, they won't have to play the bad guy - and may even try to console you. That will help strengthen your relationship. --4. Promise that it won't happen again. If appropriate, offer up a plan that you intend to follow. Sometimes they'll want to hear it, sometimes not. Either way, they'll know you've put some thought into it. --5. Accept the consequences. Maybe you get yelled at. Maybe you get fired. Maybe you end up sleeping on the couch. Whatever it is, accept it without objection. If you really think your punishment was too harsh, address it later when cooler heads will prevail. --6. Go the extra mile. Don't only correct your mistake, go one better. If you were late for a meeting, start being the first one there. If your work was shoddy, make sure it's flawless and done ahead of schedule in the future. Everyone screws up. As long as you don't make it a regular habit, people will forgive you, especially when you handle it well. Of course, the best advice for dealing with mistakes is this: Don't make them in the first place." - Brendan Florez
