Re: Us government's trick to violate civil liberties

True wisdom begins with acknowledging that we know little.
We become wiser still when we realize that the things we do know can easily change.

The only thing any man can ever state with certainty is his own viewpoint.
Hence whenever someone claims that something can not be, it is just evidence that they are unwise in my opinion.

This is the philosophy that I apply to all my discussions (unless I get pissed off and lose sight of it lol) both on my part, and on the part of the people I am discussing with.

Another way to put it is that every man is fallible, And out of recognition of this fact I don't eliminate possibilities. You could claim that I have learned that something isn't true. But I don't believe I have, I have learned that someone thinks something is untrue, which is not the same and more often than not turns out to be different in the end. If there was absolute assurance that the possibility was impossible, then I would agree, but such a thing isn't possible, so elimination is just a waste of time.
