    As Ms. Le Guin herself suggests in a later commentary, all the higher, more penetrating ideals are revolutionary. They present themselves far less in the guise of effects of past experience than in that of "probable causes of future experience". So ideal of "justice for all" as "probable cause of future experience" of justice for all is a noble ideal. An unburdening of the American conciousness from the darkness of the "stone age" practices of the last administration is what Americans will get by shuttering GITMO.
