the answer to last month's Fix,

"Given the Oklahoma City bombing, should the US adopt police state tactics
for the public safety?"


Gentle readers, I have a grave announcement to make. After all these years of extolling the virtues of individual liberty, I must confess that the savagery of this act is so profound, even I am swayed. There can be no further denial or delay. The American citizenry must be disarmed - now. Henceforth, I will call for the disinvestment of you readers from your weapons. This includes all firearms, suspicious combustibles, blades over three inches long, sharpened sticks and clubs. I know that Ben Franklin said,

"Those that can give up essential liberty to gain temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."

but he and the other Founders could not possibly have foreseen the invention of explosives.

Furthermore, since the "right to privacy" can be used seditiously, I will support bills in Congress to revert the nation's phone service to party lines, ban the use of encryption, require the use of transparent mailing envelopes, and make public the financial records of all citizens.

I now fully realize the folly of the fight for personal liberty that I have waged and take full responsiblity for the deaths which I have caused by engendering hatred with my words. I hope all of you will come to realize, as I have, that our only hope for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness lies in a central govt. of limitless authority and benevolence.

Summoning the Spirit of James Madison
by Joseph Sobran

I recently visited a gypsy and told her to put me in touch with the spirit of James Madison. "An unusual request," she muttered, "but I will try." The candle sputtered and a moment later a trembling voice said, "Who calls me from the other world?"

"I'm a journalist, Mr. Madison, and a reader of yours. I'd like to ask you a few questions."
"I will try to answer", he said.
"I've studied the Constitution and the Federalist Papers Mr. Madison, and I'd like to know how you feel about the way things are going on down here."
"As you know, I cannot control events on Earth. I have no influence over them," the voice said.
"I know that Mr. Madison. Would you say that the present govt. of the United States is what you and Mr's Hamilton and Jay had in mind?"
"Oh certainly not! Hamilton favored a more vigorous federal govt. than I did, but even he would disapprove of your system now. Limitless central power, huge standing armies, extortionate taxes, stupendous debts, bad paper money - not at all what we were proposing."
"But sir," I said, "you did assure your readers that Federal tyranny would be nearly impossible under the Constitution. You said Fed powers would be few and well defined while the powers of the states would be numorous and indefinite. Today, as you know, the truth is the reverse of this."
"Only because the Constitution was not adhered to. If your politicians had kept their oaths to uphold it, you would still be enjoying your freedoms today."
"I agree," I said. "But you did ridicule your opponents for predicting exactly what has happened: that the national govt., given a few powers, would eventually seize more - 'usurp' I believe was the word used - and impose a consolidated govt. Would you now concede that they were right?"
"I can only take responsibility for the Constitution as we left it. The original document and the first 10 amendments. Later amendments, especially the 14'th and 16'th, changed the whole system. They allowed the Fed to bully the states and the people."
I had him on the defensive now, and pressed the attack. "But even these ill considered changes would not have been possible under the Articles of Confederation. Don't you agree?"
"Well, yes. I suppose you have a point."
"So if you had to do it over, would you still urge ratification of the Constitution?"
" I don't know. It seemed like a good idea at the time."
"Does it seem like one now?"
"Well there were many things we couldn't foresee: Lincoln, Wilson, the two Roosevelts, that horrible Lyndon Johnson ..."
"That's the point," I said. You didn't see what your opponents did, that ambition would overwhelm your meager safeguards."
"Can I go now?" the voice whined to the gypsy.
"Yes, go back to your rest," she said, then turning to me, "You should not torment these souls. If they know they are going to be baited, they will no longer come when I summmon them."
Too bad. It was a promising avenue for investigative journalism.

The Glass is Half Full
Mort Zuckerman, Feb. 27, US News and World Report

On the face of it, the evidence is admittedly gloomy that the economy is getting worse. The great employers of the 20'th century have become the great unemployers. From 1980-1993, the largest US manufacturers have cut 4.7 million jobs, a reduction of 25%. The downsizing is not part of the business cycle, costs are cut even as the economy grows. The median household income, adjusted for inflation, is down 7% since 1989. It's no wonder that the President and other pols say that Americans are working harder for less and that too many cannot be sure of a job next year.

But there is something a little phony about this doomsday scenario. Statistics overlook the fact that there has been a reduction in family size. On a per capita basis, discretionary income (adjusted for inflation) is up nearly 50% since 1970. Non-cash income - health insurance, pensions and other fringes - has also increased real wages. Over the last 20 years, the proportion of higher income families has grown faster than lower income ones.

It is the way we measure living standards that yields the conclusion that we are worse off than we were 20 years ago. Quality of life does not show up in the statistics. Houses are about 1/3 larger, with bigger kitchens, central air, cable TV and garages. People work fewer hours, take more paid vacations, and retire earlier.

Ed: I would question each of those assumptions.

One reason why perception may not mesh with reality has to do with the way we measure inflation, which may be overestimated by as much as 50% according to Fed Reserve Chair Alan Greenspan. This may explain why buying power seems to have declined. Why then is the gap so huge between happy individual experience and the perception of the economy as a whole? One reason is the stereotype of the mass layoff, siezed upon by the politicians and the media. But the future looks bright. Productivity is at a 20 year high and the US now ranks as the No. 1 exporter.

Ed: I would remind the reader that we just had a huge drop in the dollar's value, thus making our goods cheaper.

Maybe it's time to comtemplate the possibility that America's historical optimism is justified once again.


1. NC State Jeff has mixed praise.
>From Tue Apr 25 23:13:07 1995
Subject: Jeff's contribution to the Stevey Monthly


I want to get my contribution to the next issue of the Stevey Press 
to you as soon as possible.  It's a quote from North Carolina
state representative Henry Aldridge.  Aldridge was speaking during a 
house committee meeting.  He was speaking in support of eliminating money 
that North Carolina currently provides to fund abortions for women who are 
raped and become pregnant.  He was claiming that women who are raped
cannot get pregnant.  Here is what the North Carolina Republican

"... The facts show that people who are raped, who are truly raped,
the juices don't flow, the body functions don't work, and they don't
get pregnant."

hope all is well, Jeff Thorne

P.S.  I think your last issue of the Stevey Press was on target 
regarding the slanted coverage of right-wing fringe groups by the
mass media since the Oklahoma bombing.  On the other hand, I would be quite
proud of you if you could spend some of the next issue discussing
how many of the views espoused by the the militia and guns-rights
groups are sheer lunacy.  I know such a discussion would be contrary
to your usual tone but you are smart enough to see the weaknesses
in some of the arguments put forth by groups to which you are largely or
partially sympathetic.  Also, it would be educational for some of your
more feeble-minded right-wing readers. 
Ed: Well Jeff, of course you are right. There are lots of right wing loonies too, as your snippet from the NC legislature points out. But I think that they hardly need exposition by me. If you want to hear about them, turn on any major news broadcast, or read the New York Times, Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, LA Times, New Yorker, Atlantic Monthly, Utne Reader, Rolling Stone, The Progressive, Atlanta News and Constitution, ad infinatum ad nauseum. They can and do a fine job of exposing conservative lunacy.

Knoxville, TN; April 24:

A 16 year old boy in Knoxville was found dead in his bedroom by firefighters.
He was nude with the remains of a cow's heart attached to his genitals. Wires
were attached to the cow's heart and plugged into a wall socket. Apparently
one of his porno mags described a sex toy where batteries and a circuit make
the heart beat. The news report (AP Newswire) claims that this is becoming
popular in the rural South.

Hi Steve,

I haven't contacted you long.  Yes, and I have no excuse, except I am kind

But I took time to read the R. News and I'm as puzzled as you are what on
the earth gun control has to do with fertilizer.  Guns are not my favorit
toys you know that, but this type of reaction to Oklahama I find simply
stupid.  Well, it is propably lot more then stupid, it is like asking for
gun control after Eastonia sunk at the Baltic sea, just completly out of line.
Leatly I was busy learning about networking, internet and stuf like that. 
Last monday night I down loded HoTMetaL, next day evening I wrote a home
page for myself, and wednesday night I downloaded and instald a server

should learn more about UNIX systems, so I decided I will setup LINUX on my
machine at home.  
David just told me you was going to buy a system preloaded with Linux, can
you tell me about the vendor?
More, I would like to play with Linux based servers, internet browsers,
remote access, and of course htm authoring.  I guess you are the best person
to give me some direction.  You migth think I set my aims to high but
beleave me I am a fast learner.
By the way if you want to see my home page try:
Some of the links are purposefuly meaning less they served only to practice

In response to the question of the month: 

In a word: "No!" 

In more words: We already have plenty of law enforcement powers at the 
disposal of our law enforcement agencies to do their jobs. The problem 
would seem to be one of the courts who mitigate the sentences imposed, or 
let crimanals go as fast as our law enforcement agencies can throw them in.

We cannot cede any of our rights in return for the *promise* of more 
protection. This is foolish at best, an opening for tyrany at worst. 
Although the OK City bombing was a horrible and henious terrorist act, let 
us note that terroism does NOT happen on US soil often (I will also recall 
the NY Trade Center here)... We do not need knee-jerk political reactions 
that would have doubious benefits.

Clinton, are clearly using the bombing for political gain. He is very
quick to jump into the National spotlight and say that we must give up some
of our rights for "security." He says he wants to add about 1000 FBI (and 
other types of) Federal agents. Recall that his 1995 proposed budget calls 
for the elimination of over 1000 of these types of Federal agents.

> "Given the OK City Bombing, should the US adopt police state tactics?"

Of course this is an excellent way to handle crises like this.  I
suggest the federal government sponser a few more [bombings] then they 
will not have any trouble establishing a police state.  People (some) will 
be screaming for it.

Just think, isn't it easier to set up and maintain a police state than
to actually try and solve societies problems?

Seriously, no matter how tight the security is, there will be nothing
anybody can do if a small group decides to use fertilizer to blow up
buildings.  Here in London, when the IRA was still bombing, the ones
that they caught seemed more like chance.  

So really, by making cars and trucks illegal to own and operate, more
lives would be saved.  This eliminates the delivery system of choice
for terrorists and saves more lives each year than the Vietnam war
killed.  This would save more lives than elimating guns which is the
government's current solution.

On the lighter side:

I travel to work on the London Underground.  For the Underground and
British Rail, they have these wonderful public address systems they
call "Tannoys".  Tannoy of course is the corporation that manufactures

They have this incredible artifical intelligence feature that can
anticipate important works.  For example the operator might say "The
train on platform 5 has been diverted to Glouchester immediately",
while you will hear "The train on platform 5 hmmm...zzzz... immediately".

One morning I was travelling to work and they announce that the Earls
Court station was closed.  When I arrived at my destination, I learned
that the station was closed due to a defective public address system.
This had never stopped them before!  Maybe, it was working!?!

Well, Chuck would say that we already have a police state.  I would ask "
What do you means by police state tactics"  It's a loaded question 
without a definition.

But using the assumed definition of police state stactics, I say no.  
resoundingly no.  Our greatest weakness in dealing with the 
terroristproblem is also our countries greatest strength.  Our freedom as 
individuals comes with a price -- responsibility -- and a cost when those 
choose to abuse that freedom.  Someone once said "ever vigilant" or some 
quote involving that thought comes to mind.  

As for humerus stories, a sailor was getting off the liberty boat, 
slipped, and broke his arm.

1. May 8, Minneapolis: A 25 year old male was wounded by airport security as they apprehended him when he fired 43 rounds into the walls and furniture of the airport. Onlookers say he could have killed many people, but seemed more intent on destroying property.

2. St. Paul, May 21: Neighborhood Ice Cream trucks are to be banned from the glorious worker's paradise of Minnesota. Yes, it's true. By beguiling innocent children with their siren's song, ice cream trucks lead youngsters to their deaths. Or rather, they may someday. Not one child has yet to be run over by an ice cream truck, but they MAY be someday and that is enough to send the evil capitalist pig peddlers of ill gotten animal by-products packing. All hail the Glorious STATE!


1. Royal Oak, May 8: Dr. Jack Kavorkian is in the news again. This time he was present when a seventy-ish 'patient' took his life. Body count - 25.


Ed: This issue of NewsWeek came out just before the April 19, Ok. City bombing. Recall that Tim McVeigh, the accused for the Ok. City crime, is said to have been avenging the Waco massacre which occured exactly two years before.

1. Carson City, April 17 NewsWeek: A small bomb exploded in the US Forest Service last week. Forest Service rangers have become the target of an anti-Fed campaign, and they are spooked. Another bomb exploded the same day, destroying a Forest Service outhouse in Lamoille Canyon. Rangers still talk about the blast that tore through the Bureau of Land Management office in Reno two years ago. No people have been hurt yet, but fears are that they may change.

Feds administer over half the land in many Western states, a situation that many find intolerable. In Nevada, "There are some areas we don't go into anymore," says BLM's Michelle Barret. The BLM office in Idaho offered war-zone guidlines to officers: stay in radio contact, travel in pairs, plan escape routes, and carry "how-to-cope" cards in case of arrest by local officials.


1. Wichita, April 27: Prosecutors are attempting to extradite Terry Nichols, friend of Tim McVeigh, to Oklahoma to stand trial for the bombing in Oklahoma City. The judge in the extradition hearing, US District Judge Monti Belot, granted the extradition saying,
  I don't believe that the average US citizen has that many guns [Nichols had
33], pamphlets about Waco or literature about govt warfare."

2. May 17, NPR: Janet Reno has found sufficient evidence to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the charges against Secy. of Commerce Ron Brown. Brown, formerly Chair of the Democratic National committee before the Clinton appointment, has been accused of using campaign finance funds to pay off a previous mistress.

3. May 15: Pres. Clinton has announced that he favors former Pres. Bush's decision to renounce his lifetime membership in the NRA. Bush published his resignation letter, calling it his way to voice displeasure with recent adds run by the NRA wherein NRA V.P. Wayne LaPierre denounces BATF officers as "jack-booted thugs." Clinton said that noone, including ultra right wing groups such as the NRA, has the right to denigrate law enforcement officers.

Ed: Of course, Clinton neglects to mention that Michigan Dem. Congressman John Dingell, who is also a lifetime member of the NRA, appeared in an NRA promo video in 1981. In the video, Dingell called the BATF, "jack booted storm troopers ...". Curiously, Dingell has not been labelled an unpatriotic, right wing, radical.

>From Thu May  4 17:15:15 1995

Evidently, even the Boy Scouts are now on the hit list of the feds. Realize
that every gun club, the Boy Scouts, most summer camps, and the various
"Outward Bound" type things for corporate V.P.'s fall under the definition
of "paramilitary"...your kids could go to prison for up to 10 years
for getting their Eagle Scout badges.

2. See if the following letter seems a bit anti-familiar.

Dear Mr. President:

Recent violence proves you correct about the government's responsibility 
to protect citizens from the fear of violence. I think you will agree my 
ten-point plan is an effective extension of Senator Feinstein's Assault 
Wapons Ban, the Brady Bill, your Crime Bill, and your pending 
Anti-Terrorist Bill.  My points:

-First, we must censor individuals and groups (religious and secular) who 
incite children and the weak-willed to acts of violence;

-Second, those espousing views influencing violent crime should be 
considred co-conspirators and prosecuted;

-Third, the powers of federal police agencies should be increased to 
include investigation of anyone they suspect of advocating violence;

-Fourth, the depth of suspect investigations should not be hindered by 
the courts;

-Fifth, there should be no limitation on the types of punishments 
inflicted upon those found guilty of acts of violence;

-Sixth, any violent crime suspect found innocent should be liable for 
retrial should new evidence arise;

-Seventh, local and state courts should be replaced by a single more 
efficient federal court system;

-Eighth, the grand jury and jury systems should be replaced by more 
efficient federally-appointed judges;

-Ninth, all firearms manufactured, sold, and registered in the United 
States should be solely for hunting and one-shot only; and

-Tenth, United States military personnel and traveling federal police 
should be boarded in the homes of citizens, deterring crime and saving 
billions of dollars in barracks costs and hotel/motel rooms. Honest 
citizens have nothing to hide and would consider it an honor to help rid 
their country of violent crime.

In order to protect the citizens of this country, this plan should be 
instituted right away. Please let me know how quickly you can enact this
