I had a post in mind about 9/11, terrorism and American liberty, but it’s a busy
day week at work so I’ll point you to this old article on Freedom from Citizen Rider.
They hate us because we are free. They hate us because we question the beliefs they hold so fervently. They hate us because they think we don’t belong in their country.
Assuming that their way of life is the one true path, they deem us infidels, lesser beings who deserve to be destroyed.
They can’t stand freedom. Having given it up themselves, it irks them to see anyone else have it and use it. They create a whole value system based on the necessity to be like them and deprive ourselves as they do.
