    Veterans Day--A Thought for Rememberance

    Below is a clip from The Americanization of Emily with James Garner and Julie Andrews.

    Julie Andrews considers this her favorite among the movies she's made.

    A little plot description is vital to understanding. Andrews has invited her new love interest, Garner, over to meet her mom in London in 1944. The clip below starts with Andrews and Garner walking out onto the back patio. Just moments earlier, Andrews told Garner that her mother was pretending her father and brother, both killed in the war, were still alive. The implication being that mom couldn't face their deaths. Andrews asked Garner to play along.

    I would invite you to consider whether Garner's character says anything of value for this Veterans Day.

    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    U.S. v. Minker, 350 US 179, at page 187
    "Because of what appears to be a lawful command on the surface, many citizens, because
    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)
