(Before It's News)

If there was anything that turned me down the path to libertarianism as a young buck it was learning of the forced internment of Japanese-American CITIZENS in camps under FDR. It is such a shameful chapter in American history and it highlighted to me the need to fight an all pervasive government and collectivism generally. May Manzanar and the other West Coast camps serve as a warning to those who would vest ever more power in the state.

(From KPCC)

Feb. 19 — the day Executive Order 9066 was issued — is called the Day of Remembrance and is remembered annually by the Japanese-American community. This year being a major anniversary has given rise to a series of programs including a new exhibition opening Saturday at the Japanese American National Museum in Little Tokyo.

The show centerpiece is the original Executive Order 9066, on loan from the National Archives. Organizers say it’s the first time the three-page document has been shown outside of Washington D.C.
