That does get to the heart of it. And you

are right that I find myself inadequate to assuage Progressive fears of freedom. It has often struck me that those who support a big government are seeking some guaranteed security in the very wrong place that betrays them consistently: a coercive monopoly rather than their own selves, families, communities, the masses of people of good will whom we meet every day in ordinary life, the spontaneous organization for good and sharing and assistance that we see clearly on the anarchic www and economic free trade.

Instead of personal comfort, personal security would have been a better choice of words. Either way an illusion, IMO.
If ever you have a few minutes to read Paul's End The Fed or Griffin's more detailed The Creature from Jekyll Island,I'd hope they would help explain the source of economic distortion and robbery of the people.

Thanks for your feedback.
