What Is, And What Is Not, Within The Power Of The State
A legal debunk of "emergency powers" pretenses, followed by some commentary on what must-- and what must not-- change in the "post-Covid-19 world".

AMERICANS DON'T CREATE GOVERNMENTS in order to have their lives micromanaged. Americans don't WANT their lives micromanaged.

Nor do Americans empower governments to compel their obedience in any regard, other than per authority expressly and deliberately delegated-- by super-majorities of the population as a whole, after due consideration and debate-- concerning the relevant area or issue. Further, such authority is always circumscribed by rules as to its scope and the manner in which, and purposes for which, it can be exercised.

IN FACT, WE AMERICANS CREATE GOVERNMENTS solely to accomplish a small number of things which the super-majority agrees in advance are needed, and feel cannot be properly accomplished by individuals acting alone, or by reliance on the natural and spontaneous dynamics of society. The state (by which is meant here both the federal entity operating out of Washington, DC and each of the several states) has no authority to do anything else, and can command nothing except as necessary to the accomplishment of that small number of things (and while keeping within the limits of all Constitutional prescriptions and proscriptions on its behavior).

Everything beyond that small number of things delegated to the state (on good behavior, and subject to all the rules and restrictions imposed) is left to society and the people as individuals. And that small number of delegated things can be withdrawn from the state's portfolio at any time by the people, to whom complete authority over all of it actually belongs.

In no regard and under no circumstances has the state been authorized to act simply as its officeholders see fit, and to compel our participation and cooperation with those decisions. Indeed, the state cannot be so authorized, under a Constitutional system.

More Points Of Light Amidst The Despotic "Lockdown" Darkness
Three real American heroes share a bunch of inspiring new victories in pouring water on the witch.

THREE WEEKS AGO VICTOR SWOPE secured his first CtC-educated victory in reminding Uncle Sam who works for whom in America. Victor saw to the complete refund of the more than $27K that had been paid-in to the feds against the possibility that anything he had done during 2018 qualified for the income tax:

Other Voices:

Brave New Normal
A witty but ultimately chilling observation by C.J. Hopkins, followed by a very important afterword by Yours Truly.

DON'T MISS ANY OF THIS, friends. We are not in a time suited to surfing-- this is a time calling for serious intake, serious resolution and serious follow-through.

Read carefully, share widely, and stand tall.

And, of course, as always:
Illuminating Anniversaries For This Week!

*****

"I confidently trust that the American people will prove themselves...too wise not to detect the false pride or the dangerous ambitions or the selfish schemes which so often hide themselves under that deceptive cry of mock patriotism: 'Our country, right or wrong!' They will not fail to recognize that our dignity, our free institutions and the peace and welfare of this and coming generations of Americans will be secure only as we cling to the watchword of true patriotism: 'Our country--when right to be kept right; when wrong to be put right.'"
-Senator Carl Schurz, October 17, 1899
