I don't think its even a question any more.

Walter Clark, Fullerton CA

Normally Hornberger has wonderful quotes, but this one troubles me. It is something one libertarian would tell another when drunk at a liberty conference boasting about his radicalness. Although true, it isn't going to move a single non-libertarian to liberty. Not one.

De jure representatives were long ago replaced by criminal opportunists and religionists (socialists and otherwise statist collectivists). Said criminals and religionists evolved with a mask of guardian. The guardians are terrorists.

Yes, they have.

Valerie N, Richmond VA

Yes. The "guardians" -(correction:who never were), ARE the terrorists.
