The (Malleable) Rule of Law


A thoughtful, chilling look at the recent interview with Alberto Gonzales – whose job, lest we forget, was to uphold laws – about torture, which he said "may be necessary in the future." 

"It is now a tenet of Republican political philosophy that
illegal and unconstitutional practices can be sterilized by order of
the President... They are telling you they will torture again in the future.. that they have the right to order
it if they can win just one national election."

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
