Check out Michael Maciel's essay on freedom here.

One interesting point:

I am not saying that we should outlaw traditions (didn't Mao try to do that in China's Cultural Revolution?) but that we need to make diversity the cornerstone of our tradition. We need to say not only e pluribus unum, "out of many, one" but also "within the one, many." We can never lose sight of the extraordinary fact that America truly is the melting pot of the world, more so than any other country in modern history. The ties that bind this family are not those of blood or tradition, but of an ideal -- freedom.

Go read the rest. And visit Mr. Maciel's site,
