While Evils Are Sufferable

Make your will and more.

Jefferson wrote, in the Declaration of Independence:

...mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

While evils are sufferable. Are they still? How much more are a people supposed to suffer at the hands of unrestrained and lawless government? Is not every day spent wondering, dreading the next dictates from on high? Is there not a sense that there is no recourse to the unconstitutional acts of the bureaucracy? Is there not a feeling that the Supreme Court is acting against the rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness inherent to every free individual?

It is clearly the intent of the Constitution to secure these rights, it is the very purpose of its construction to do so, yet time and time again the Court finds in favor of government power against the liberty of the people.


  1. Diet, injections, & injunctions will combine, from a very early age, to produce the sort of character and the sort of beliefs that the authorities consider desirable, & any serious criticism of the powers that be will become psychologically impossible." ~ Bertrand Russell, from his book "The Impact of Science on Society" (1953)
