The War between the States...

produced the foundation for the kind of government we have today:

consolidated and absolute,

based on the unrestrained will of the majority,

with force, threats, and intimidation being the order of the day.

Today's federal government is considerably at odds with that envisioned by the framers of the Constitution.

... [The War] also laid to rest the great principle enunciated in the Declaration of Independence that

'Governments are instituted among Men,

deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed'..


~ Walter E. Williams ~ (1936- )

Columnist, Professor of Economics at George Mason University





I am now quite sure that 'Tragedy and Hope' was suppressed although
I do not know why or by whom. ~ C.Quigley ~
