What "Freedom Isn't Free" Really Means

Check out my latest at the Partial Observer. Excerpt:
[Let's] assume that some people would have been upset enough about seeing the upside-down flag on the Fourth to either steal the flag or act violently against Congine.

In a fantasy world where government exists to protect our rights, the police would have protected Congine at the first sign he was being threatened. If angry mobs were forming, the police in a "rights-protecting" government would have circled Congine's property and swung their clubs at anyone who dared trespass. In real life, however, it was the police who stole the flag.
