Quote of the Week


From dL's latest post at Liberale et Libertaire:

Simply, when the Executive declares unilateral power to declare anyone "fair game" outside the bounds of due process -- and this power is backed up by the most unaccountable intelligence and military complex in the history of world civilization -- then liberalism and its legal underpinning are dissolved. Both "classic" and "high" liberals should be in agreement that this condition thus marks a point of dissolution of political obligation.

Hard to see that as anything but a very bright line unless you were already okay with the process of Ba'athification American Style from some earlier point. In which case you weren't a "liberal" of any kind to begin with.
