“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.”
In certain contexts, obedience to authority may be a strategic sacrifice of freedom in one context for the sake of greater freedom overall. But Giluiani generalizes that here almost to the point of Newspeak.
I think an America run by Giuliani would be a very scary place. Although if we were attacked by terrorists we would have a leader capable of appearing on camera and looking very serious afterwards. So you have to take the crunchy with the smooth I suppose.
Luckily a President Giuliani seems to be a very remote possibility at this point.
