Please let us
For the benefit of humanity.
Take no offense
At this melange of consciousness.
It’s bringing together
To forge anticipating pathways
For God’s will in us,
By the fruit of the Holy Spirit’s
When we plant
We are in the presence
Of His gift
And in the fruit of the flowers,
Lies His radiation.
The credence of His beauty
For all cultures,
Clicking through pages,
Bows and greetings,
Found is a pathway
Of light to God.
All else dissipates,
Vibrations of unqualified rapport,
Only tried through virtual halls,
And the hint of scruples
Gone from conscience,
These twists of fate
Are latency no more,
For with the fruits of the Spirit,
There is no law.
When God’s will in us
Brims to the fore,
The Holy Spirit is life,
In all of humanity’s

Abstract, University of Chicago Law School, September 21, 2005
“Though courts and commentators say that the state should not punish an undercover defendant who does not offend outside such operations, no existing theory fully justifies this principle or the defense (without calling into question basic commitments of American criminal law): (1) Under retributive theory, the entrapped are blameworthy, given that a defendant, who succumbs to the same temptation from a private party is blameworthy.”

“‘Moral entrapment’ refers to instances where an actor commits himself rhetorically to certain moral values and principles at stake, only to discover that he must either moderate the rhetoric and risk losing his reputation for moral virtue, or maintain the rhetoric and thus further raise the expectations.”
“‘political entrapment’ – when an actor builds upon his rhetorical concern by making a material commitment that cannot be withdrawn without an unacceptable loss of face, nor be kept if international support is not forthcoming.”
“When the political commitment includes a military component, military entrapment lurks in the shadows of the initial, home-made moral and political entrapment.”
“Judging by the number of substantive comments made in the literature regarding the role of the Netherlands, it would seem that the impact of Dutch foreign policy was greater in the early cooperative environment than in the subsequent competitive environment.”
