“Brent knew that the federal “justice” system had been built on the concept that “you cannot fight city hall”. It had been structured to deprive all defendants of a fair trial by putting most of the power in the hands of the prosecutors, and tying judges’ hands with mandatory minimum sentences.”

“We must learn that passively to accept an unjust system is to cooperate with that system, and thereby to become a participant in its evil.”
Martin Luther King Jr.

“If you knew when your last day of life was going to be, it was the best place to spend your last night on earth, because in Russia people party like tomorrow will never come.”
Kenneth Eade, An Involuntary Spy

“Society tends to stick labels on everything and everyone. The label that is given to you will stick with you for a lifetime.”
Kenneth Eade, An Involuntary Spy

“Sometimes one man must fight for what he feels is right, even against the majority. Something that is wrong does not change to right just because the majority approves it, ignores it, or the government says it is right. It is still wrong.”
Kenneth Eade, An Involuntary Spy

“Genetic engineering was messy. To force a sequence of foreign DNA into a plant, you couldn’t just snip the desired gene from the bacteria and sew it on to the plant’s DNA sequence like an old woman working on a quilt.”
