Cunning deceit, false charges, made-up evidence and learned lawyers

Cunning deceit, false charges, made-up evidence and learned lawyers. This Book of Mormon’s description sounds like the current policy towards declared homeland terrorists and whistleblowers:

13 Nevertheless, there were some among them who thought to question them, that by their cunning devices they might catch them in their words, that they might find witness against them, that they might deliver them to their judges that they might be judged according to the law, and that they might be slain or cast into prison, according to the crime which they could make appear or witness against them.

14 Now it was those men who sought to destroy them, who were lawyers, who were hired or appointed by the people to administer the law at their times of trials, or at the trials of the crimes of the people before the judges.

15 Now these lawyers were learned in all the arts and cunning of the people; and this was to enable them that they might be skilful in their profession. — Alma 10:13-15

FCC Chair Refuses to Testify before Congress ahead of Net Neutrality Vote

“We are deeply disappointed in Chairman Wheeler’s decision” not to testify,” House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Fred Upton (R-MI) and Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) said in a joint statement.

“As Chairman Wheeler pushes forward with plans to regulate the Internet, he still refuses to directly answer growing concerns about how the rules were developed, how they are structured, and how they will stand up to judicial scrutiny. After hearing from over four million Americans on such an important topic to our economic and cultural future, it’s striking that when Congress seeks transparency, Chairman Wheeler opts against it.”

Don’t expect Chaffetz’ comments to result in positive change for the causes of liberty, as usual.

If the Internet existed at the time the Communist Manifesto was written, it is likely that taking control over it would be a ideological to-do to squash dissent.
