Right on !

All rights are inalienable and personal. The society of the here Justice is not my society. Justice Jackson's society was that of totalitarianism, making a lie of the rest of the comment.

Thought control is practiced well by the socialist, which pollute this Free Republic under siege !!!

Not shooting the messenger, this quote is right on.

Mike, Norwalk

jim, if the last sentence is isolated, I absolutely agree with the whole of your comment. Thought control is a copyright of totalitarianism, and we, the individual sovereigns (in person and/or in concert) with intact inalienable rights and liberty have no claim to it.
