Civil Rights (Minorities, Racism, Immig, Vets) Quotes

“The Foundation of All Totalitarian Government” – Incarceration without Rights. Churchill.

The power of the executive
• to cast a man into prison without formulating
   any charge known to the law,
• and particularly to deny him the

is in the highest degree odious,
and the foundation of all totalitarian government whether Nazi or Communist.”

from Winston Churchill (He was a guy who knew enough history, and had enough public experience, to have a pretty good clue about what was going on.)
