Perry de Havilland Quote

“The Radical Centre seem to have the same obsession with control that the fascists and communists had, but unlike them, it is control for control's sake rather than in the service of some clear ideology ... They do not seek the triumph of Volk or the dictatorship of the proletariat, they just seek to replace all social interactions with politically mediated interactions. They seek to regulate everything via a total state that ... just wants a world in which nothing whatsoever is private, everything is political. Their symbol is not the Hammer and Sickle or the Swastika, it is the CCTV camera.”

~ Perry de Havilland

An obvious observation in the astute.

Or, an astute observation in the obvious ;-)

Patrick Henry, Red Hill

So corruptive to frail human character is power that Henry David Thoreaus dictum remains ever salient:

" That government is best which governs least."

The malady is one of the constitutional inability of most persons graciously to possess and judiciously to wield power.

Sambizdata, one of the most powerful blogs in the world. As also Liberty-Tree.ca can be found to keep Good Company. The observation is very astute. To protect the "Inalienable Rights" of the least, governs best, the most. With this awakening, it is inspired through that which good is.
