War and liberty

“‘Inter arma enim silent legis’ is a Latin phrase meaning ‘In times of war, the law falls silent.’ Generally bureaucrats and politicians try to suspend civilian rights during war time. (The relatively ‘good’ ones, that is — the bad ones try to do it all the time. If I dare speak of ANY politician or bureaucrat as ‘good.’) … a couple of years ago, we were told that we are at war (Trump’s word) with this ‘invisible enemy’ novel coronavirus, then we must conclude that it will be upheld by the Nazgul of the SCOTUS if some State dictator ordered the confinement of either ‘vulnerable populations’ or ‘dangerously-infected’ people. … So it came as a surprise, to us here at TPOL, to hear that a New York State judge has ruled the similar claim of imperial power is unconstitutional.” (08/03/22)
