"On the other hand, it will be equally forgotten, that the vigor of Government is essential to the security of liberty; that, in the contemplation of a sound and well-informed judgment, their interest can never be separated; and that a dangerous ambition more often lurks behind the specious mask of zeal for the rights of the people, than under the forbidding appearance of zeal for the firmness and efficiency of Government. History will teach us, that the former has been found a much more certain road to the introduction of despotism, than the latter; and that of those men who have overturned the liberties of republics the greatest number have begun their career, by paying an obsequious court to the people; commencing Demagogues, and ending Tyrants." Federalist paper number one.

another great in depth analysis of the current craziness in DC.
Lawfare has good content but the audio quality is poor. They need a sound engineer to deal with the ever-changing volume of various speakers.
thanks for the deep discussion of this bombshell document!!
excellent discussion of many roles of ICE and complexities of current situation. it's always more nuanced than a hashtag.
