If there was an Attorney General advocating only Immigration Daily's preferred interpretation of liberty from one of the following three: "hegemonic liberty", "reciprocal liberty" or "natural liberty", but not "ordered liberty", thereby "elevating his own concept of liberty over all the others" (as Immigration Daily phrased it) would Immigration Daily then be acusing that person of "diminished liberty in America, not enhanced it”? If Immigration Daily did not act in a consistent fashion, then that would be intellectual dishonesty.
Dan Ehrlich, Attorney at Law
Editor's Note: Mr. Fischer's point (in his book, "Albion's Seed: Four British Folkways in America") is that it is the tension between all four visions of liberty that keeps the American tradition of liberty alive. He opines, and we agree, that elevating any one of the four over the others would diminish liberty.
