Rudy Giuliani seemingly is running his campaign for President like a long distance runner conserving energy for a late push, which will either be seen as genius or folly in about six months. He’s a very competant guy that gets things done. He put a lot of gangsters and corrupt securities traders away, he cleaned up New York, he acted brave during 9-11. He’s also sort of a fascist. If he were President, he’d more than likely try to be our first benevolent dictator.
I just found a quote that sums Rudy up in one hugely absurd, Orwellian sounding bite. Goebbles could have easily said the exact same thing.
“Freedom is the willingness of every single human being to cede to lawful authority a great deal of discretion about what you do and how you do it.”
I’m not sure that was how Thomas Jefferson saw it. I would define it the same way but I’d take out “a great deal of” and put in “as little as humanly possible.”
