Why our freedom is under attack and what we must do

The elimination of the right to Habeas Corpus in the new Military Commissions Act -- signed by the President in October -- completes a series of staggering attacks against the constitutional rights of the American people.


Cover Story

School violence: The roots of the rash of killings in our schools

"Ten naked little boys, between six and twelve years old, tied together, two and two, by their wrists, were all fastened to a long rope and followed by a tall, gaunt white man, who, with his long lash, whipped up the sad and weary little procession, drove it to the horse-trough to drink, and thence to a shed, where they lay down on the ground and sobbed and moaned themselves to sleep."

Frances Seward, wife of Lincoln's secretary of state, wrote this statement (quoted in Doris Kearns Goodwin's Team of Rivals) after witnessing a group of slave children driven to Richmond to be sold.
