LIBERTY: Rights & Tolerance | April 20, 2005


An E-Mail to a Democratic National Committee Member

In Response to Reports of Harassment of Non-Christian Air Force Cadets

Our security forces exist to address the -- often real, sometimes imagined -- problem of our collective insecurity. Intolerance exists because of -- usually imagined -- individual or collective insecurity. I don't remember the image of either General Washington or Jesus Christ cowering in insecurity. To the extent that we who promote tolerance and our own version of national security project an image of secure, rational self-confidence -- think FDR or JFK -- we will defuse a lot of the xenophobia and paranoia in the country.
