Judge Learned Hand Quote

“Heretics have been hated from the beginning of recorded time; they have been ostracized, exiled, tortured, maimed and butchered; but it has generally proved impossible to smother them; and when it has not, the society that has succeeded has always declined.”

Not shooting the messenger, a very accurate observation. Those that would preserve and live by the laws of nature and of nature's God, and express self in liberty with inalienable rights held sacrosanct are heretics all to the occupying statist theocracy infesting this land. The current socialist macabre ostracize, exile, torture, maim and butcher those that are not complicit with compelled compliance, government license, victimless crimes, larceny with impunity (2nd plank of the communist manifesto, Social Security, police state confiscations, etc.) and other canon enforced dogmas. It has generally been proved impossible to eradicate all the heretics (moral and substantive freemen) by the declining socialist macabre.

    This is the agenda of the very Foul Leftist Heretics.
