In comments on an old post, Kevin mentioned this Rudy Giuliani quote:
“Freedom is not a concept in which people can do anything they want, be anything they can be. Freedom is about authority. Freedom is about the willingness of every single human being to cede to lawful authority a great deal of discretion about what you do.”
You might think there’s some ambiguity to this quote, that it could represent a reasonable point about accommodating personal liberty and the rule of law. Maybe it could, out of someone else’s mouth. But not coming from Rudy Giuliani. This is a man who can count cracking down on jaywalking as a major achievement.
In my opinion, this is one of the most important unreported stories about Giuliani’s candidacy. With a bit of work, we could probably insure that no one under the age of 30 would vote for Giuliani. Know anything about photoshop or video editing? We should talk.
