Thomas Sowell on compulsory community service
Posted by Liberty on December 2, 2008
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.
