And with this: ..compelled to commit suicide or accept our murder.. you're locking yourself firmly between the horns of a false dilemna.
So let me get this straight. We are compelled to live with a lethal desease because our Contitution stipulates that even something that will kill us has the right of protection.
I can just imagine future historians discussing the brief existence of the USA. It goes like this:
A: Notice how advanced that society was? They were certainly different from the rest of the world.
A: But also notice that they were destroyed from within because they insisted on a set of rules based on a sense of fair play.
B: Right. They preferred total destruction over survival.
A: You can say what you want about these Americans, but they heroically hanged onto their 1st Amendment principles up untill the time that it killed them.
B: Right, but also notice that those who took over from them rid themselves of that Constitution. So what good was that 1st Amendment?
