What’s Left of Freedom

I read this article this morning on National Review.com and liked it.  Freedom has been on my mind lately, probably because I’ve been reading about the American Revolution in A Patriot’s History of the United States by Michael Allen and Larry Schweikert.  [Fantastic book, by the way.  I highly recommend it.]  Why is it that American society values so many other concepts [community service, multiculturalism, environmentalism, etc.] ahead of individual liberty?  Individual liberty is not an out-dated idea–it’s fundamental to the survival of America.
