    As for the sentence you quoted, it summarizes the difference between progressives and libertarians.  There was a time when it was reasonable to believe that liberty would bring enlightenment.  I think one key lesson of the past 223 years has been that enlightenment is a precondition for liberty.  When government can act in secret and keep us citizens in the dark about what they're doing ... our liberty is in great peril.

    Thank you again! ::hugggggggggggs::
