A very good article on the nature of Freedom, which I found quite interesting. It's a bit thick to read, but well worth the effort. If more people in this country were aware of this sort of thing, we'd all be in much better shape, and would probably have never elected the string of incompetent-but-well-meaning doofuses from Bush I to the Present (very-temporary) Inhabitant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Emperor Barack Hussein Obama I.
I don't agree with everything the author had to say, but he made enough interesting points for me to recommend that you invest your time in reading it.
If you don't, I will hunt you down and kill you in your sleep.
