 Topic — A Political Opinion by Frank Ellsworth Lockwood: The author speculates about a blind spot that undermines both the Democratic and Republican parties and is more of a threat than most people seem to realize. The introduction is no news to Progressives.

Disclaimer:This is a kind of American politics 101 written by someone who never learned to completely trust authority. (Trust but verify. Here is why.)

In all likelihood there is nothing for the CIA to release!

“Do you owe anything to your country, or should you be able to opt out of a proscribed service requirement?”

A friend posed the above question to me: As I thought about it, I almost wanted to become a Libertarian! (And that is not something I want to consider, not something I wish to be.) 

But this got me thinking. It got me thinking about, “Who or what exactly is my country?” And “To whom do I owe a debt?”
