Governor Christie’s Demagoguery
In his put down of Senator Rand Paul for the latter’s defense of limited governmental powers in foreign policies, Governor Chris Christie has not produced arguments but engaged in demagoguery. Bringing up the grieving of relatives of 9/11 victims amounts to just that.
The issue is whether the government has the authority to exert military and similar power as it carries out the task of securing the rights of the citizenry. It must find a way and not violate rights, for which there is no excuse. If governments do engage in rights violation while securing the rights of the citizenry, they become criminal organizations and lose their moral authority, period.
