Re: Memorial Day - Yet another salvo
There can be no comprise with terror. There can be no appeasement. There
must be the Rule of Law.
"Will Roper So now you'd give the Devil benefit of law!
Thomas More Yes. What would you do? Cut a great road through the law
to get after the Devil?
Roper I'd cut down every law in England to do that!
More Oh? And when the last law was down, and the Devil turned round on
you - where would you hide, Roper, the laws all being flat? This country's
planted thick with laws from coast to coast - man's laws, not God's - and if
you cut them down - and you're just the man to do it - d'you really think
you could stand upright in the winds that would blow then? Yes, I'd give
the Devil benefit of law, for my own safety's sake."
