Secrecy and a free, democratic government don't
My early choice
in life was either to be a piano player in a whorehouse or a politician. And to
tell the truth, there is hardly any difference.There is
no more fundamental axiom of
freedom than the familiar
In a free country we
punish men for the crimes
they commit but never for the opinions they have.
Once a government is
committed to the principle of
silencing the voice of opposition, it has only one way to go, and that is down
the path of increasingly
repressive measures, until it becomes a source
of terror to all its citizens and creates a country where everyone lives in
atomic bombs"President Harry Truman, who ordered the bombing of Japan, was not
required to seek approval from anyone before doing so.
Truman wanted to assure himself that others with more experience
and expertise shared his belief that a nuclear attack on Japan was justified.
He secretly created what he called the Interim Committee so
named because it was established to make only a single recommendation
and asked for its opinion. Secretary of War Henry Stimson was the chairman.
Its other members were the president of Harvard, the president of MIT,
and senior representatives of military and security agencies.
Interim Committee reviewed intelligence and interviewed physicists who had
developed the nuclear bomb, including Enrico Fermi and J. Robert Oppenheimer.
After three weeks of deliberation, it advised Truman that it agreed
with his decision to attack." - Stephen Kinzer
National Security Resources
1947 Truman signs the
National Security Act creating the Central Intelligence Agency and National
1949 National Security
Resources Board (NSRB) adopts a national censorship plan designed to restrict
the free flow of information to the public in the event of a national emergency
or war. The government assumes the power to censor communications and suspend
freedoms of the press.
An NSRB document outlining the program says
censorship may be activated in a time of war or of national emergency
proclaimed by the president and found by him to arise from the use or threat of
force by a foreign power.
Author Ted Galen Carpenter will later
comment: Although advocates of censorship habitually insisted that it
would only by invoked during wartime, the guidelines contained no such
limitation. A declaration of war was not required; merely a declaration of
emergency arising from a perceived foreign menace."
1949 Policy for Asia, National Security Council document 48/2 states
Japan would become Asia's industrial
economy, fired by US companies. Washington would 'connect up' other Asian
economies to Japan's industrial machine and as markets for Japanese goods to
isolate and contain China.
April 14, 1950 Dean Acheson's top secret policy is laid out in
National Security Council document 68 calling for an enormous US military
encircling the globe to protect 'war-making capabilities' of its allies, a
euphemism referring to countries with resources that American industry needs to
manufacture arms to contain
NSC-68 called for a military capable of:
defending the Western Hemisphere and 'essential' allied areas so that their
war-making capabilities can be developed; providing and protecting a
mobilization base while the offensive forces required for victory are being
built up; conducting offensive operations to destroy vital elements of the
Soviet war-making capacity, and to keep the enemy off balance until the full
offensive strength of the United States and its allies can be brought to bear;
defending and maintaining the lines of communication and base areas necessary
to the execution of the above tasks; and providing such aid to allies is as
essential to the execution of their role in the above tasks.

Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious
practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This
web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the
Way of Life - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which
requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church
buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a
personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the
knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has
enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are
spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against
