"Posterity, you will never know how much it cost the present generation to preserve your freedom. I hope you will make good use of it. If you do not, I shall repent in heaven that ever I took half the pains to preserve it." -John Adams

Welcome to Patriot's Lament. We strive here to educate ourselves on Liberty. We will not worry ourselves so much with the daily antics of American politics, and drown ourselves in the murky waters of the political right or left.
Instead, we will look to the Intellectuals and Champions of Liberty, and draw on their wisdom of what it is to be a truly free people. We will learn from where our Providential Liberties are derived, and put the proper perspective of a Free Individual and the State.
Please join us!

It is interesting that the phrase "compelling state interest" has its origins in the 1944 decision where the Supreme Court upheld the mass incarceration of people because they had Japanese ancestry.
Proving that the totality of politics is, as Lenin said, the question of who does what to whom, and the conflict to be the who and not the whom, George Takei now seeks to be on the "pitching" side. His family was wrongly held by WW2 internment. It is a shame he missed the larger lesson, but he is not alone.

Will Grigg writes eloquently about this issue here.
