Court Decision Exempts Secret Memo From FOIA, Sets Stage For Future Secret Laws To Go Unchallenged | Techdirt

Court Decision Exempts Secret Memo From FOIA, Sets Stage For Future Secret Laws To Go Unchallenged…

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. I remember back in the 1980s the US government criticized the PRC for jailing its citizens for violations of secret laws. I guess the US was a different country back then.

    (I also remember “social studies” classes in the late 1970s, in which the innumerable moral advantages of the US over the USSR were enumerated. All I can say is, we’ve met the enemy, decided we admire him, and emulated him in every way we could.)
