Doug Smith, the author of On Value and Values posted this alarming news on his blog today:
"...two professors at UMass told their local newspaper about a student of theirs who "was visited by federal agents two months ago, after he requested a copy of Mao Tse-Tung's tome on Communism called "The Little Red Book... The student, who was completing a research paper on ... fascism and totalitarianism, filled out a form for the request, leaving his name, address, phone number and Social Security number. He was later visited at his parents' home in New Bedford by two agents of the Department of Homeland Security."
Smith contrasts the attitudes of Thomas Jefferson and Ben Franklin with our very own King George. A great post. Read it here >>
