Rudy and Rushdoony on Freedom

Freedom is about authority. Freedom is the willingness of every single human being to cede to lawful authority a great deal of discretion about what you do and how you do it.

-Then Mayor, now Presidential candidate, Rudolph Giuliani
" 'Freedom Is About Authority': Excerpts From Giuliani
Speech on Crime." New York Times. March 20, 1994.

Freedom must be under law or it is not freedom.
-R. J. Rushdoony in the Institutes of Biblical Law.
Quoted in American Fascists: The Christian Right
and the War On America
by Chris Hedges.
