Thanks for a great

de Jouvenel has sagely pointed out, through the centuries men have formed
concepts designed to check and limit the exercise of State rule; and, one
after another, the State, using its intellectual allies, has been able
to transform these concepts into intellectual rubber stamps of legitimacy
and virtue to attach to its decrees and actions. Originally, in Western
Europe, the concept of divine sovereignty held that the kings may rule
only according to divine law; the kings turned the concept into a rubber
stamp of divine approval for any of the kings' actions. The concept of
parliamentary democracy began as a popular check upon absolute monarchical
rule; it ended with parliament being the essential part of the State and
its every act totally sovereign. As de Jouvenel concludes:
Many writers on theories of sovereignty have worked out one . . . of these
restrictive devices. But in the end every single such theory has, sooner
or later, lost its original purpose, and come to act merely as a springboard
to Power, by providing it with the powerful aid of an invisible sovereign
with whom it could in time successfully identify itself. Article

mm pistols he bought illegally in March 1997. Murphy lied under penalty
of perjury when he said he was going to use them in his work. In fact,
former Mayor John Bowden gave him $700 in advance to make the purchase.
Should Murphy be punished for lying, as provided by law?

lot of others wouldn't move to a city governed by Fascists, either, so
the government, desperate for taxes, overpowers resistance and annexation,
allowing those who want to defend their land, their families and
their political ideas only 3 minutes to plead for leniency. Who would want
to live in a place where the officials would tell citizens trying to speak
about their futures not to create "an emotional circus?" Story.
