Suspicion is not evidence, let alone proof. In that one word--
*suspected*--the devil's heel becomes visible. The Inquisition,
citing "vehement suspicion of heresy" showed Galileo to its chamber of
torture. The Robespierrist Terror, which decimated the French
revolutionaries and led directly to Thermidor and Bonaparte (which
found their historical justification in it), was "legally" based on
the "Law of Suspects." What if not "suspicion" was the justification
for the enslavement and killing of millions during the Stalinchina?
What if not "suspicion" does Obama cite to justify the imprisonment
and torture of thousands at Guantanamo Bay, Bagram, and all the
unnamed "black sites?" To cite the torture of "Tory
victims" (members of the majority who stayed loyal to their legal
government) by the slaveholder-led minority terrorists of the American
"Revolution" is to promise similar actions (and on grounds of
"suspicion," not proof) in any future revolution that this writer and
his cothinkers have anything to do with. A "Leftist" can do no better
were he actually endeavoring to discredit the very idea of revolution.
The communist creed: From each according to his ability, to each
according to his need.
The capitalist creed: From each according to his gullibility, to each
according to his greed.
Joe Stack (1956-2010)
