To protect dishonest people is to condemn them to their own hells.

Individual rights were not originated to protect criminals but to bring freedom to honest men. Into this area of protection then dived those who needed “freedom” and “individual liberty” to cover their own questionable activities.

Freedom is for honest people. No man who is not himself honest can be free—he is in his own trap. When his own deeds cannot be disclosed then he is a prisoner; he must withhold himself from his fellows and he is a slave to his own conscience. Freedom must be deserved before there is any freedom possible.

To protect dishonest people is to condemn them to their own hells. By making “individual rights” a synonym for “protect the criminal” one helps to bring about a slave state for all; for where “individual liberty” is abused, an impatience with it arises which at length sweeps us all away. “

  1. It is true in absolute but I am pretty sure that it is exactly how the CoS sees the people who have decided to not follow its path: criminals.

    And based on this bulletin they say that “criminals have not right”, and so we have the many violations in human rights reported here and there.

    So imho, if honest people should have the right of freedom, criminals should keep ANY TIME AND ANY WAY their rights too, I mean The Human Rights, cause we are all the criminals of some others…
