No One Should Be Above the Law

Michael Gass, Truthout: "In 1776, our founding fathers made a bold pronouncement: that all men are created equal, that we were endowed with inalienable rights, and, among these were Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. Enshrined in our Constitution were more bold pronouncements: that no man could be deprived of his rights, that no man [is] above the law, and, that our government was designed to protect these rights."

Capital Sins

Leslie Thatcher reviews Sophie Gherardi's witty - and dead-on - 'novel of the financial crisis,' 'Capital Sins': "If Voltaire were to write about today's financial crisis, there might be a bit more sting, but no more elegant turns of phrase and clarity. The Enlightenment, 'Les Lumieres' - literally, 'The Lights' - in French, occurred during the darkest days of the Ancien Regime, a period not wholly unlikely our own, characterized by runaway cronyism, state-sanctioned monopolies, huge disparities in wealth, massive scams, an inflammatory press and highly variable access to the justice system."
