It's a pleasure to read the essays on the history and the law. I always come away enriched, and reflect on how it was when I was in school. Some of what he touches on was still being taught. How worried I get when I think of how little the Americans of today, lack in self understanding, through our own written history and philosophers.
I am a Republicanist, for how little I truly understand about it, and by my upbringing I believe I am a humanist as well. I marvel at persons such as Peter Landry, who are able to set off the little sparks of fire and explosion, in another person's brain with his conclusions regarding mankind and his own understanding of himself, through reflections of great writings.
He will eternally have me as a perpetual student." -- G.E.G., Dayton, Nevada.

An English authority to the Magna Carta had set out: "No freeman shall be seized or imprisoned, or have his rights and possessions taken from him, or outlawed, or in any way destroyed; nor will we go upon him, nor will we send upon him, except by the lawful judgement of his equals, or by the laws of the land."
