Freedom trumps fear

Dear Editor:

I want to congratulate Andy Stone on his very excellent column, “Big Brother saved us” (April 23, The Aspen Times). It was intelligently laid out and very insightful. So many times “prophets” have warned us about this very thing and do we listen? We simply will not learn from history. “Never mind our liberties, never mind our freedoms, just save us!”

I would rather die free than have my every movement on camera and my every communication screened by a government. The hell with being safe, I want to be free from being spied on!
