I did a small good thing for #Ukraine today. Introduced an American journalist friend to local activists fighting corruption. Win-win.

    The Magna Carta and the 800-Year-Old Struggle for Liberty

    http://www.breitbart.com/national-security/2015/06/15/the-magna-carta-and-the-800-year-struggle-for-liberty/

    Excerpt by Robert Hall @ http://tartanmarine.blogspot.com/:

    It is also unquestionable that the actions of the barons
    at Runnymede and the production of the Great Charter,
    inspired the American Colonists in the 1770s to claim
    their rights not to be taxed without representation.
    They made these claims not as Americans, but as
    transplanted Englishmen – British subjects – who
    had become habituated to exercising their rights as
    freemen and they invoked the Magna Carta constantly.

    The Declaration of Independence most definitely
    reflects these claims and the later U.S. Constitution
    only amplifies them.

    The point I am making – and which the Conference
    [in Los Angeles] will seek to emphasize—is that a
    direct thread links our own Constitution and Bill
    of Rights–which governs our political life and
    enshrines our political and civil rights–to the events
    in England 800 years ago.

    And we cannot afford to forget the arduous journey
    undertaken by our ancestors to secure these rights–
    which accrue to us largely by virtue of their fortitude
    and sacrifices.

    We need to defy those who would paint the Magna Carta
    as just a back-room deal between a crooked king and
    his cronies that the King never took seriously anyway.

    That is a falsehood. None of the rights enjoyed in USA
    today in our free society would have been possible
    without the Magna Carta.

    The fight for freedom and against tyranny and slavery is never over.

    Read a second time and understand.
