Reader comment on item: U.S. Improvising on Security Five Years After 9/11

Submitted by David W. Lincoln (Canada), Sep 5, 2006 at 16:00

The peace of Westphalia which ended the 100 years war, and saw the sphere of government regain status of the dominant sphere from the sphere of the sacerdotium - this is accepted by a lot, but by no means all.

As long as the dominant sphere of life is something other than government, then adaptability and improvisation are the cardinal attributes we have to utilize. Why? Because the gains of the dominance of the sphere of government are not to be viewed lightly.
