Guard Your Enemies from Oppression —> Thomas Paine


He that would make his own liberty secure  must guard even his enemy from oppression;  for if he violates this duty  he establishes a precedent  that will reach to himself.  — Thomas Paine, Dissertation on First Principles of Government (1791)

He that would make his own liberty secure
must guard even his enemy from oppression;
for if he violates this duty
he establishes a precedent
that will reach to himself.
— Thomas Paine, Dissertation on First Principles of Government (1791)

Liberty, not Hypocrisy <– Noam Chomsky


Censorship, like all other oppression, is always imposed with the excuse that its victims are obviously wrong, bad, unhealthy, or foolish

 

If we don’t believe in freedom of expression for people we despise, we don’t believe in it at all.

Noam Chomsky, Guardian (UK), November 23, 1992

It is the Interventionists Who Are Isolationists <- Ron Paul


Each of the last five American presidents, treating the evil Egyptian dictator like a friend, thereby helping isolate America in the eyes of the world

 

It is not we non-interventionists who are isolationsists.

The real isolationists are those who impose sanctions and embargoes on countries and peoples across the globe because they disagree with the internal and foreign policies of their leaders.

The real isolationists are those who choose to use force overseas to promote democracy, rather than seek change through diplomacy, engagement, and by setting a positive example.

Ron Paul, I advocate the same foreign policy the Founding Fathers would, Union Leader (2007)
