“Governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, that whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.”
Sound familiar? I sure hope so, because it is straight out of the Declaration of Independence, the document that brought freedom to America and created the foundation for our government. It is also an important theme from the science-fiction novel Little Brother and is relevant in the post-9/11 world where the fight against terrorism in America is turning the protectors into the violators, the protected into the victims, and the terrorists into successes.
