Liberty is a radical idea!Submitted by Anon A Mouse on Wed, 10/26/2011 - 18:23
It literally took centuries to convince people that the earth was a sphere instead of flat. There was a long period where a few scholars and educators reluctantly came around to the idea that it may be round rather than square, but not round like an apple, round like a table.
Similarly, liberty is a radical idea and difficult to sell. We don't want to go over the edge.
