When Laws Become Contemptible

According to news reports, immigration advocates are advising illegals that their best bet against deportation is to clam up and say nothing when the cops come calling. This hacks off critics who claim the do-gooders are aiding lawbreakers. Quoting one article, "It shows blatant contempt for the rule of law in this country and blatant contempt for local police working with federal authorities to clean up this mess," said Chris Simcox, president of the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps. Continuing crackdowns on undocumented border-busters have thousands of immigrants flocking to pro-immigrant forums where techniques on ducking deportation are taught. Mass movements have always engaged in widespread lawbreaking whenever enough people decided the current laws were contemptible.

Then in 2006 the TSA began quietly testing two new anti-personnel weapons. One is sort of an automated lie detector, a booth that interrogates suspects with damning questions ("Did someone put something in your luggage when you weren't looking?") while software analyzes feedback from biometric sensors busily monitoring blood pressure, pulse rate and nervous tics.

The Ron Paul Legacy of Freedom: How people will govern themselves.

How will future historians view the Ron Paul Campaign? They will recognize this as the change point, when the people realized they could do it themselves. Ordinary people are creating tools that are changing politics; by so doing they are proving that the people can govern themselves. That was the original vision that brought America into being, watch as ordinary people make that vision a reality.

Our lives mostly occur in a social context, not on a desert island.  Therefore, the rules of that society must be conducive to the ability of individuals to think and to act for their own lives.  Society, therefore, must exist in a condition of what is commonly called freedom, or liberty.
