Question the Government?!

Is it prudent to do such a thing? Doesn't questioning the government show how unpatriotic you are? Isn't g-d guiding them?

Answers: YES, NO, NO

From the Washington Post:

Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-Neb.) strongly criticized yesterday the White House's new line of attack against critics of its Iraq policy, saying that "the Bush administration must understand that each American has a right to question our policies in Iraq and should not be demonized for disagreeing with them."

"We do not believe any group of men adequate enough or wise enough to operate without scrutiny or without criticism. We know that the only way to avoid error is to detect it, that the only way to detect it is to be free to inquire. We know that in secrecy error undetected will flourish and subvert." -- J. Robert Oppenheimer

(Maybe Bush wants to have it that way...)

"One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors." -- Plato

(It may pay to get A's, but C's get degrees, eh Georgie?)
