Of course, gentle libertarian-oriented friends, I don't ascribe cruelty to you, but I urge you ask yourself how far extremism in the name of liberty should be taken before it becomes a vice, or at best self-defeating. Men of intemperate minds cannot be free. Their passions forge their fetters. -- Edmund Burke To suppose that any form of government will secure liberty or happiness without any virtue in the people, is a chimerical idea. -- James Madison 1 Suppose individuals solve problems by freely agreeing on institutions like democratic governments with civil liberties and also taxes, police forces, prisons, some middle ground between non-violence and slavery? If people freely enter into a contract that imposes sanctions for violations, is it still freedom? 2 Yes, Virginia, people identify, and act with their tribe, nation, other institutions, not just as individuals.

In the same fashion, the free university, historically the fountainhead of free ideas and scientific discovery, has experienced a revolution in the conduct of research. Partly because of the huge costs involved, a government contract becomes virtually a substitute for intellectual curiosity. For every old blackboard there are now hundreds of new electronic computers. The prospect of domination of the nation's scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present—and is gravely to be regarded. Yet, in holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite. It is the task of statesmanship to mold, to balance, and to integrate these and other forces, new and old, within the principles of our democratic system—ever aiming toward the supreme goals of our free society.

The 32-year old football player signed a contract to move from Boca Juniors to the Shanghai Greenland Shenhua Football club. The deal will reportedly earn him near 6,100,000 Chinese Renminbi (€835,000 / $887,000) per week, allegedly making him the world's highest-paid player. SOT, Shanghai Shenhua fan: "No matter which football star it is, I will be here if they are from Shenhua F.C. It started in 1994. I feel I am like the parent for Shenhua, and I will be with Shenhua forever." SOT, Shanghai Shenhua fan: "I am not sure he [Tevez] will adapt to the matches in China but we have a year for him. I hope he will perform as well as he has for his previous football club."

The legal team representing former editor of the Citizen newspaper Steve Motale says he must be reinstated. This comes after Motale was dismissed without going through a disciplinary hearing in November. Motale was allegedly fired for publishing an article that didn't sit well with newspaper seniors. The defence argued the case was urgent and Motale bridged his contract with the publisher. For more news, visit: http://www.sabc.co.za/news

Numerous outlets on the peninsula have linked Juventus with a move for Milans Mattia De Sciglio , with talks developing earlier this month. According to Sky Italia (h/t Football Italia ) and others, Bianconeri director general Beppe Marotta was spotted talking to De Sciglio s representatives in Milan as the players contract has just 18 months left to run. It is widely believed that neither he nor the San Siro giants are interested in a new deal, so they could look to sell him soon rather than lose him for nothing. Their position is further boosted by the emergence of Davide Calabria , with the youngster providing solid cover for veteran full-backs Luca Antonelli and Ignazio Abate. The rumours stem from Allegris known admiration of De Sciglio , with the Milan mans agent Giovanni Branchini revealing in an interview with Tuttosport (h/t Football Italia ) that "Mattia was very close to Juventus in January" last year.

SERCO is handed the job of serving a multitude of patently illegal contracts executed by the U.S. government. They routinely perform some of the most shady services within the most corrupt sectors of the national security state apparatus. Now the reader understands why they whitewash their corporate slogan/taglineBringing service to life”. They sure do — they bring services that nobody else will touch because of their inherent threat to life. Whose life? Everybody and anybody involved with the SERCOservices’. Yes, what they really do is that perilous to people and dangerous to property. The link below provides some of the details to the convoluted but true back story of the highly mysterious disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 … and the direct involvement of SERCO.

The upcoming visit by Spain’s King Felipe to Saudi Arabia has raised concern among rights groups as reports link the trip to the planned sales of military arms to Riyadh. The Spanish king will begin a three-day visit to Saudi Arabia at the invitation of the country’s King Salman. Spanish media say the visit could pave the way for concluding a deal for selling five warships to Riyadh. Amnesty International says the contract is illegal under international law due to the Saudi military campaign against Yemeni civilians. The rights group says a 2013 UN global arms trade treaty bans the sales of arms which could be used in attacks against civilians. Saudi Arabia has been bombing Yemen on an almost daily basis since March 2015. The aggression has killed more than 11000 people.

Laxatives can also decrease your colon's ability to contract, which can worsen constipation, and they also flush out the good bacteria in your colon. Laxatives can even damage nerves, muscles, and intestinal tissues. Water There are numerous easy methods to naturally cure constipation. For example, you could start by simply drinking more water . As stool moves throughout your intestines, your body removes water. If you are extremely hydrated, your body will remove less water, leaving the stool to soften and pass quickly and painlessly. An easy indicator of whether or not you're hydrated is the colour of your urine, which should be pale yellow: too yellow means you're dehydrated and clear means you're too hydrated. Change Diet The best way to cure and prevent constipation is, ultimately, to change your diet , particularly by increasing the amount of fiber you eat.

Having reached breaking point, the people will then decide they’ve had enough, while realizing that their government is (and has been) obsolete. The government knows this and is desperately afraid of losing its grip on an overwhelming number of awakened citizens taking action. More and more people are realizing the illegitimacy of Big Government. The truth is we dont have ANY contract with them. We dont need their permission to do anything: Taking the case of taxes, taxation is theft (see video). The solution is to stop giving your power away. Stop co-operating with the control system. We are the imagination of ourselves and anything’s possible. So, let’s create a new paradigm experience, a new humanity out of what is possible. Paul A. Philips is the author of NewParadigm.ws . This article ( 7 Signs Youre Not Living in the ‘Land of the Free’ ) was originally created and published by NewParadigm.ws and is re-posted here via Waking Times.

He recognized “Mr. White,” as the ramrod soldier on TV, Oliver North, swearing to tell the truth so help me God. Durrani was convicted anyway, sentenced to 5 years in prison, fined $2 million. He lost the house, the plane, the wife, the girlfriend but never the belief that he had been set up as cover for Mr. White. Released after 5 years, he went back into business. I tracked him down in California for an explanation about Merex because it shared a name with Merex AG, founded in Vevey, Switzerland by Gerhardt Mertins, a protégé of the commando Otto Skorzeny who organized the post-war Nazi networks of Kameradenwerke and Die Spinne. Skorzeny was the idolized practitioner of special and combined operations assigned by NATO to recruit retired Nazi technicians to work with Arab nationalists like Egypt’s Nasser; their shared antipathy for Israel provided air-tight cover for espionage, just as Wilson’s contract did 20 years later in Libya.

Fox News really didnt want this story getting out. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. http://tytnetwork.com/go "Fox News settled a sexual harassment complaint by a former employee in September against its biggest prime time-star, Bill O’Reilly, and the division’s co-president, Bill Abernethy. Former Fox News personality Juliet Huddy claimed in a letter from her lawyers sent last August that her opportunities at the company ended in retaliation for not submitting to sexual advances by O’Reilly that began in 2011. She also said Abernethy had made unwanted advances towards her. No lawsuit was filed against O’Reilly or Abernethy, who was promoted to his post in August after the letter was received and was signed to a long-term contract following the settlement payment made in September.

W. Bush was engaged in another election campaign. He couldn't keep his promise, and he was defeated in that election. And the Clinton administration wasn't the least bit interested in pursuing it. That was probably one of the greatest disappointments of Rafsanjani's political life.” [ https://iranwire.com/en/features/4294 ] Hashemi offered the US firm Conoco the first oil contract to a foreign company since 1979, a major $1 billion deal to develop offshore Iranian oil and gas fields, only to be punished with new sanctions by the Clinton administration. After Saddam’s invasion of Kuwait, Hashemi persuaded the Iranian establishment to support the West’s campaign to oust Saddam from Kuwait. Instead of being rewarded for his tilt towards the West, the Clinton Administration introduced its “dual containment policyimposing more sanctions on Iran, and in 1995 declaring a near-total embargo on US trade with, and investment in, Iran.
