Freedom Concerns


The Voice Of Tyranny

The Voice Of Tyranny

The reporting on a violent incident at the Occupy protests last year reveals the linguistic lengths to which newspapers can go to hide responsibility. In George Orwell’s Politics and the English Language, he lists the passive voice as part of a "catalogue of swindles and perversions," techniques in political writing "designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind."

So You Think You Are Free?

So You Think You Are Free?

So you think you are free? After all, we have a Constitution with a Bill of Rights that “preserves” our freedoms. You’re wrong. We live in an America our Founding Fathers wouldn’t recognize and they certainly wouldn’t approve of it.

America’s Newest Vaccination

Bloomberg’s Rampant Totalitarianism, And Stopping Its Spread

A President Or A King?

During the Constitutional Convention, there was much discussion about the chief executive, how much power he should have, how long his term should be and whether there should be more than one. In fact, the lack of a chief executive was considered one of the glaring weaknesses of the Articles of Confederation.

Save Alexander Hamilton and James Wilson — who advocated for a strong chief executive similar to a monarch — delegates were most concerned that the executive would turn into a virtual king. During the Philadelphia Convention, Charles Pinckney said he was “for a vigorous executive, but was afraid the executive powers of the existing Congress might extend to peace and war, &c.; which would render the executive a monarchy of the worst kind, to wit, an elective one.”
