I found this quote that I'd like to share. I personally feel that it's very applicable to the current state of affairs in America - spefically with regard to the war that's going on and the way the government is handling terrorist attacks:
"If a government were very strong, if a government felt very secure, if a government could see and was well upscale, it would employ the most peaceful, quiet methods...
"You don't find an educated, secure man fighting with all of his neighbors. No, the person who fights his neighbors is a very insecure, not at all sane man."
— L. Ron Hubbard
