Review for Bush and Friends

In America and around the world:

1) All men and women and children are created equal, whether created in America, Iraq, Afghanistan, or any other country.

2) Torture is not okay, because it denies the equal humanity of the tortured, and destroys the humanity of the torturers.

3) Secret prisons are not okay, because no human individual - not even a pacifist - can be completely trusted to properly treat those whom he or she is afraid of, angry with, or hates, when no one with other perspectives and other feelings is present.

4) A democracy in which there is no rule of law and three co-equal branches do not behave as equals, in which one branch has completely unfettered power to write, interpret and enforce the law, and in which one party completely excludes the other party from meaningful decision-making, is not a democracy. It is a dictatorship.
