History Lesson

What with the Schiavo mess and the recent developments at the Vatican, I fear few will note the death of Fred Korematsu. What happened to Korematsu should stand as the ultimate cautionary tale of what can happen to civil liberties during wartime.

Sadly, few know the story. Of the few who do, some have drawn all the wrong conclusions.

Sad but not surprising. If there's anything we've learned from history, it's that we don't learn anything from history...
