in response to reader comment: Conflict of Truth: Freedom of Speech and Religion as Tools Against Liberty

Submitted by mariana (United States), Jun 8, 2007 at 20:47

Dear M. Tovey: This is really beautifully thought out and articulated. Thank you very much for shedding some light and clarity. Our dilemma of course, is that our enemies have always used our freedoms, liberty and judicial system against us, forcing us to [temporarily] abridge everyone's liberty from time to time.. It's amazing how cleverly they can study and disect to find "loop-holes" and methods of attack, without being the slightest bit affected by the miraculously wonderful creation this country and it's body of laws represent for humanity. All they have to do is consider the possibilities and try it, wherever they are; it's on offer, free of charge, to all. mariana
