PreviewThe people shape their own destiny
-- either as free people or as slaves.

If they remain self-reliant, they stay free.
Ever expanding state power destroys lives.

Government panacea is a defective idea.

Meanwhile, in the Middle East....

In Egypt, a 17-year-old was sentenced to death this week amid a wave of civilian cases tried by military tribunals. His trial took only five minutes.

Generally speaking, military courts should not have jurisdiction over civilians. Military trials of civilians only happens in brutalized civilization. Under the autocratic Mubarak, the military rarely tried any civilians.

So what's going wrong now?

As usual, Obama waves billions of our dollars at the Middle East. In Obama's weltbild, American money dissolves Obama's world leadership responsibility. Its the best Obama can offer, since he is bereft of functional ethics or working morality.
