Discussions I've had on the war for freedom, particularly with Baby Boomers, often become fatally caught on the realpolitik snag. They've lived all of their life in a world of iron curtains, grim alliances and stagnant, cynical political realities. Freedom as a concept is not so much taken for granted than it is seen as little more than a privilege of the American people and a choice that other cultures simply haven't taken for themselves. "We can't be the world's policeman" is a popular phrase for outright rejection. "We shouldn't impose our values on others" is a close second. Which begs the question: what could be the meaning of holding certain truths as self-evident - an idea carrying great prominence in our Declaration of Independence and profound favor in our enumeration of liberties - if the human aspiration to self-determination is localized, or else culturally relative?
All I have to say is that I look forward to reading Part II.
