A Prophetic Warning For All Americans

The following words are from an episode on Boston Legal and I have posted that video episode because it is so thought provoking and said exactly how I feel about what is happening today in our society.

“Last night I went to bed with a book, not nearly as much fun as a 29 year old, but the book contained a speech by Adele Stevenson. The year was 1952, he said ‘The tragedy of our day is the climate of fear in which we live and fear breeds repression. Too often sinister threats to the Bill of Rights, to freedom of the mind, are concealed under the cloak of anti-Communism.Today, it’s the cloak of anti-Terrorism. Stevenson also remarked that it’s far easier to fight for principles than to live up to them. I know we are all afraid, but the Bill of Rights, we have to live up to that, we simply must”. …………The Character Alan of Boston Legal

When I saw this episode I thought it is something that everyone should take to heart especially in these days upon us. Sobering words indeed. I commend the writers.
