Socialism violates at least three of the Ten Commandments: It turns government into God, it legalizes thievery and it elevates covetousness.

He that would make his own liberty secure, must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty, he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself.
If women talk in ways expected of them or project a feminine demeanor, it's seen as weak. But if they talk in ways associated with men or bosses, then they're seen as too aggressive. Whatever they do violates one or the other expectation: either you're not talking as you should as a woman or as boss.

Any law which violates the inalienable rights of man is essentially unjust and tyrannical; it is not a law at all.
Because a human being is endowed with empathy, he violates the natural order if he does not reach out to those who need care. Responding to this empathy, one is in harmony with the order of things, with dharma; otherwise, one is not.

Charles B. Rangel

In a poem, the words happen; they just come. I let them. Otherwise, I wouldn't write. To interfere with what is happening is to distort the poem. Just a very small degree of intelligence and supervision is necessary. Very tactful. Any revision later that violates the text as it came, that begins rewriting the words, is fake.
The Senate cannot confirm an individual... who would support a scheme that violates our Constitution, eviscerates congressional authority.
I think 'astroturfing' goes against the conservative creed because it violates the desire we share to be self-sufficient, and this is understandable, something with which I agree.
