Lest the mistakes of the past be repeated, let us remember these points….
Nazis used Leftist policies (Nanny Statism and “social justice”) to smooth their advance to power. Such policies have often been used as Trojan Horses to justify greater state abuses – the article also mentions FDR’s New Deal…and we all know about FDR’s policy of interning Japanese-Americans.
If you want your Auschwitzes and Final Solutions, give measures like this the green light! Investing arbitrary powers into the hands of Statists to “apprehend terrorists” without charge is to stand at the top of a very slippery slope.
Lest we forget….
