Perhaps "loss of freedom" isn't exactly accurate. The most important values like freedom of speech, expression etc are still intact. Seemingly what we really lost after 9/11 was piece of mind and now we suffer inconveniences, like more scrutiny at the airport, only because we previously were too naive to believe that such an attack could happen over here.
I find some humor in how people like yourself keep saying the Muslims want to destroy our freedom
But RADICAL Muslims DO want to destroy freedom, and that's a different argument from whether or not they actually HAVE taken away some of our freedom. Like I said, perhaps we haven't lost any freedom but rather have more inconveniences today.
For example, to claim that the government
is taking away freedom by forcing the state of Texas to accept crotch grabbing at airports, is that a loss of freedom, or is it just a rigorous security method that is a major inconvenience?
If it's a loss of freedom because it's a violation of the unreasonable
search and seizure statute, wouldn't that argument fall flat since it would be reasonable
to search where a bomb could be hidden - like in a crotch?
concentrate on the moderates to empower them to take control from within and then we might see progress.
I love the idea but unfortunately at the current moment the moderate Muslims aren't condemning radical Islam and its followers!
