New Theories for a New Time

Quoted Without Comment

As true now as it was then
"The line between investigating and persecuting is a very fine one, and the junior senator from Wisconsin has stepped over it repeatedly.... We must not confuse dissent with disloyalty. We must remember always that accusation is not proof and that conviction depends upon evidence and due process of law.

"We will not walk in fear, one of another.... We are not descended from fearful men -- not from men who feared to write, to speak, to associate, and to defend causes that were, for the moment, unpopular.... We cannot defend freedom abroad by deserting it at home."

-- Edward R. Murrow, See It Now [March 9, 1954]

Murrow's quote applies as much to Canada's mockery of justice "Human Rights" Tribunals as to Bush's multiple mockeries of justice.
