I thought at the beginning of the presidential campaigns that Giuliani might be a reasonable guy to hope gets the nomination. He's fiscally conservative, socially moderate (pro choice republican!), looked way better than other major public officials during 9/11... but then I started learning more about him.
Here's a quote from a speech he gave in 1994
We look upon authority too often and focus over and over again, for 30 or 40 or 50 years, as if there is something wrong with authority. We see only the oppressive side of authority. Maybe it comes out of our history and our background. What we don't see is that freedom is not a concept in which people can do anything they want, be anything they can be. Freedom is about authority. Freedom is about the willingness of every single human being to cede to lawful authority a great deal of discretion about what you do.
Freedom is about authority.
Insert "war is peace" and "ignorance is strength" to complete the triad. The real problem is that we focus too much on the oppression that authority represents, and not the freedom it gives us. If only we had less freedom, then we could be more free.
Giuliani for dictator!
 Man have they gotten started early. I enjoy arguing and speculating about politics, and I'm already tired of it. It's not even the election year yet!
 Ignoring the cronyism, strip searches of jaywalkers and other police abuses, among other ugliness, I mean.
