Don't Slay Monsters in the Name of Democracy

From Friday's Email Update from the Future of Freedom Foundation:

Friday, August 15, 2008

Wherever the standard of freedom and Independence has been or shall be unfurled, there will her heart, her benedictions and her prayers be. But she goes not abroad, in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to the freedom and independence of all. She is the champion and vindicator only of her own.

— John Quincy Adams, Speech to the U.S. House of Representatives [July 4, 1821]
