The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and thatís what I intend to reverse.

It was not contrary to contemporaneous law -- martial law was in effect at that time and under that version of martial law there was little difference from despotism. A general officer could summarily execute anybody and order troops to open fire on civilians. And they did. Which was one of Leiber's points: despotism was not a rational set of rules governing behavior in time of war. He recognized that civilian laws failed to cover the acts of war and also recognized that some set of rules should apply to prevent rule by whimsy.

Perfect.
