Dear Editor:

This is what Immanuel Kant, in his 1795 essay Eternal Peace, has to say about the FISA spy scandal:

"Republicanism means the constitutional principle according to which the executive power is separated from the legislative power. Despotism occurs when the state arbitrarily executes the laws which it has itself made; in other words, where the public will is treated by the prince as if it were his private will."

Where are the Republicans when we need them?
