    I hope Mr. Lind (of whom I am a fan) points out that until Lincoln's time, most Americans thought of "freedom" and "liberty" and "independence" as involving both political as well as economic ideas.  It was the railroad age that taught us that the 1776 was only about political rights, and ever since most Americans assume that it 'twas always thus.  'Twasn't.

    Need not be in the future either.
