Definitions of freedom, continued

The huge anti-Syrian demonstration in Beirut today is exciting, showing that big things may really be on the way there. Unfortunately, those big things may include a Tiananman Square-like crackdown or civil war.

An L-dotter writes:

This picture from the Beirut protest says it all. Isn’t freedom beautiful?

The photo he links is of a young, scantily dressed Lebanese woman with her breasts half-exposed and a saucy expression on her face, standing in a crowd at the Beirut demonstration. If this “says it all,” if this represents what we stand for as a nation, if this is the “freedom” with which we want to overcome every traditional culture on earth, including what’s left of our own, then we are maniacs heading toward destruction.
