Don't blame al-Qaeda. Don't blame Ashcroft. Look to yourself. Since the terrorist attacks of 9/11, American ideas about liberty have been swinging from one extreme to another. At first, most citizens were so worried about being killed that they called for security at almost any cost. Then, when that cost became clear, some citizens protested that the amount was too high. From a keen libertarian perspective, Walsh analyzes the effects of 9/11--and some Americans' childish notions of liberty, demonstrating that U.S. ideas of liberty have been blurring for years. These troubled times, she argues, can force a clarification of what liberty, society and rights truly mean.
