    the government is benign.  The house committee on Un-american Activities was actively against anti-Vietnam protests and other social activism.  They considered this kind of speech a form of aiding and abetting communism.  Like terrorism, Communism could be hiding anywhere.

    Today, government has a "compelling interest" in curbing "terrorist activities."  This interest has opened the door for the NSA to legally wiretap the entire population of the planet, to detain individuals without charge or evidence, and to search and seize property without a warrant.  That is the monster that needs to be caged and starved.
