    "...we can start right away by instituting changes at the local level, holding our government officials accountable to the rule of law, and resurrecting the Constitution, recognizing that if we fail to do so and instead follow our current trajectory, the picture of the future will be closer to what George Orwell likened to “a boot stamping on a human face—forever...”

I'm not exactly denigrating Whitehead for this editorial. I believe he means well. But he remains statist to the core.

And his use of the term "we" and "our" sidesteps the individual. I have no "government officials" that I know of. I treat those who go by that claim as I treat rattlesnakes. I expect nothing from them but trouble. Except, in the case of rattlesnakes, they do help keep the mosquito and rat population down.

Abstain from beans, my friends. It might seem a small thing. But it's a start. Sam
