Civil Liberties in a Time of War
As I have argued since day one on this blog: liberties are ordered and are always dependent on context. It's why a civil libertarian, like myself, can also call for more state intervention in the context of war. War changes everything. Apparently, an emminent legal scholar agrees. If you get the chance, be sure to listen to the whole thing.
What we should be asking is, what can I do to help? I say we can help each other by watching out for each other. Sites like this are a great step. Imagine what would have been the outcome of WW2 if there had been a communication media as powerful as the web?
Most of all, we should be lending moral support to the Iraqi people as they begin the task of confronting Muqtada al-Sadr. My guess is the USA is calling in the chit on his ass. I hope so. Remove him, and the Sunni faction will need to fight the IGofI or capitulate.
