There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
i think what most fail to grasp is that what the FF did was institute a government of for and by the people, a thing radically different from previous governments, what they all stood for was liberty of the individual, and that is the foundation of the USC, restriction of Government, not people....
Some forget this, others, like myself, still fully believe in that ideal of liberty. I find this thread sad in a way.....
Matthew 10:34Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
I personally think these things are wrong, but I also exist and was raised within the context of the modern US.

I find it hard to believe that anyone would even try to say Joe Blow working for wages from a legitmate company has it as bad as the real slaves of the past and those currently kept enslaved under penalty of severe physical harm or death.
