Gilliland, Thomas Moore.Favourite Quotations:"Politics is ethics done in public" - Bernard Crick If there was a god she would have struck me dead with lightning a long time ago. "I recognized then that if you came to a choice between losing freedom of speech, religion, association, thought and resorting to force, you use force." - Tommy Douglas, after a trip to World Youth Congress in Geneva, August 1936. "La fin suprême que l'homme doit viser c'est la liberté, seule capable de fonder la valeur de toute fin." - Simone de Beauvoir "Not a single human being for a single moment of time should be excluded from the sphere of rights. Not one should be in danger of becoming the prey or the instrument of another individual. Not one should be deprived of the sure means of laboring freely without servile dependence on any other individual." - Studies in Socialism, Jean Jaurès, 1906 About me:I remain unconvinced that Uncle Charles preferred "Statist" solutions. Whenever a person is put in charge of a command economy their interests become antithetical to the interests of the working classes.
