Interesting Tom.

I think it takes alot of experience, alot of reading and alot of years to begin to understand that these ideas are more than just 'ideas' people throw around. Did you ever notice how the 'founding fathers' of the United States, were old? I think age sometimes has something to do with it. I believe they understood the importance of freedom of speech, of equal representation ...etc as more than just guiding principles, but as fundamental values basic to the prosperity of all humanity, but that this appreciation came with the experience of loss, of suffering indignity and humiliation, and education.
