Today's Truth

"Today, when a concerted effort is made to obliterate this point, it cannot be repeated too often that the Constitution is a limitation on the government, not on private individuals -- that it does not prescribe the conduct of private individuals, only the conduct of the government -- that it is not a charter for government power, but a charter of the citizen's protection against the government."

Ayn Rand - (1905-1982)
Russian-American novelist, philosopher, playwright and screenwriter

Certainly something to bear in mind when reading the rather different new European Constitution/Lisbon Treaty.
