I whole-heartedly disagree,

I whole-heartedly disagree, my friend.

I DO have the right to personal liberty, along with every other human on the face of the earth. This right is mentioned in every founding document of every state in this country. The right to liberty doesn't disappear just because prejudicial individuals and the gov't doesn't want to recognize it.

BTW, Icarus DID do whatever he wanted, and was personally responsible for the consequences.

I can use the Icarus analogy from where I'm sitting, though. Icarus wanted to do something that was obviously a bad idea. Anti-immigration nuts want to deny humans their right to liberty, even though it's obvious that denying people their rights creates misery. Icarus let his desires override his reason. You guys let your prejudice override your reason.

There's nothing wrong with being prejudice towards people that are outside of your "collective". There is something wrong with trying to equate the idea to anything liberty oriented.

... No, wait!!! There IS something wrong with being prejudice!!! There's also something wrong with screwing the rest of the world over for the sake of your "collective" as well. Horribly wrong, I might add.
