Rothbard: Banned in Rhode Island?


Rhode Island Gov. Dan Carceiri is pushing for a new security law in his state. From an Associated Press report:

Gov. Don Carcieri's new homeland security law would create new felony charges, require annual safety audits of every public school and close some public records, including those that show whether businesses comply with state Fire Safety Code requirements.

The bill, which Carcieri introduced last week, also resurrects World War I-era laws that make it illegal to "speak, utter, or print" statements in support of anarchy; speak in favor of overthrowing the government; or to display "any flag or emblem other than the flag of the United States" as symbolic of the U.S. government.

Rhode Island's ACLU is, unsurprisingly, in opposition. For more on their critique, see here.
