The maximum that "Tryanny exists when good people do nothing" is profoundly true. When Vice-President Cheny announced that our Govt. was going over to the "dark-side," he meant torture which is contrary to all our values as Americans. When his abetters, like Johnny Yoo try to justify his madness, then Berekey Professor of Law Johnny Yoo is perhaps just as evil.
The answer to this crisis of moral leadership in our Government can be found in the Book, Estoeric Psychology by Alice A. Bailey (pp.544,545) "The obessed leaders in all branches of government are shells obsessed by evil entities and hence their dynamic, one-pointed potency, hence also their extreme skill and cunning, based on very ancient evil experiences and hence also the well-night ludicrous falsity of their propaganda. They are devoid of all true feelings and perception, lacking the light of love and understanding, but powerfully animated by materialism. It's time that men woke up to the nature of these beings who seek to enslave humanity. They themselves have been evoked out of their evil past by the material side of humankind. In like manner, the Forces of Light can be evoked in tremendous potency but only by the massed aspiration and spiritual desires of the peoples of the Earth. Of this evocation there are already signs."
