Burke, is it? Not enough philosophic investigation has been done into the nature of the state. Hegel tried, which is more than most of them have done.

Well, well, well, a "blast from the past" for Betty Boop. I can't remember where I saw this: probably on someone;s FR profile page, and I decided to bump it to the top.I thought it was way more current than its original appearance, since I know I read it recently. It might yet get a little more attention that it has so far today. And the REALLY interesting thing is that, as I just noticed, it was from EXACTLY four years ago yesterday, when it BTT'd it!!!!

Two things struck me while reading this. One was tonight's Torah Portion (Parashat Mishpatim) teaches us not to mistreat foreigners and the other is that liberal socialist seem to murder their opposition when they come to power. The French Revolution and later socialist regimes like Germany, Russia, Viet Nam and Cambodia. It could very well happen here.
