HOUSTON — A Texas appeals court ruled on Thursday that the state had illegally seized up to 468 children from their homes at a polygamist ranch in West Texas. The decision abruptly threw the largest custody case in recent American history into turmoil.
Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints members left the courthouse on Thursday after a ruling in their favor in San Angelo, Tex.
What do you think of the court's decision?

But the definition of a bad guy or a criminal can change when security becomes far more important to the world than freedom. And the media seem less apt to print their views even when they are expressed, for it's become less "politically correct" to object to security measures that are designed to "protect society".
But it's happening, little by little, as one crisis after another crops up. Terrorism and crime causes nations to link their security forces more closely. Little by little, the threads that will weave governments together into one are being woven. And when the time is right, the crisis of all crises will come to pass and the world will cry out for the man who can bring it all together and make it one, solving all these problems.
