To: Cultural Jihad
Anyone who would consider the word freedom and the word license to be synonymous gives away their position as a power loving authoritarian. Your post is, as usual, pathetic.

"Anyone who would consider the word freedom and the word license to be synonymous gives away their position as a power loving authoritarian. "
Cultural Jihad reveals his politics by his very name. Although I doubt he is blowing things up, he believes he is fighting a holy war against western culture just as Muslim fanatics do. The idea of personal freedom terrifies him just as much as it does the Muslim because he believes that without strong state control, people will behave immorally.
It is his great misfortune to have been born in the 20th century. He would almost certainly have been happier to live during the middle ages.

There are many sorts of authoritarians. Some should have been Mullahs, Mahdis, Muftis, Bishops, Archbishops, Cardinals, Inquisitors, Grand-Inquisitors, etc.
JIHAD -- Mostly used in Muslim writing to denote holy war. However, in mystical literature, this term was interpreted in its root sense of exertion and came to mean an inner struggle for purification.
As long as they keep the Jihad an "inner struggle".
When it comes to them trying to "purify" the rest of us...
Then I retreat to the very northernmost portion of New Hampshire or some mountain redoubt which is defensible -- someplace where our liberties can be recovered and defended -- and where we can be left alone!
