  •  There are some things that can't be redressed. (3+ / 0-)

    It is one of the mythologies of the Right and of Libertarians that all damages can be redressed. That's why the Objectivist "solution" to pollution is post-hoc fines, rather than preventive regulation.

    It's fucking fantasy. The average American will be completely ruined if locked up for more than about 3 weeks. There will be no redress for that fall into the underclass.

    To put the torture behind us is, inevitably, to put it in front of us.
