Johan-

  I think that the exchange above shows that we agree on who in our society has given us the freedoms we enjoy. We might even agree on which politicians we hold in the lowest regard.  #%$#

  I can only respond with one of my favorite quotations, which you have probably seen before:

  "War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight , nothing which is more important than his personal safety is a miserable creature, and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."

                                                             -John Stuart Mill (1806-1873)

  True then. True now.
