VIDEO: Harvard students claim America is a bigger threat to peace than ISIS.

And yet?

And yet, in a perverse way there is an element of truth to be found here.  By standing up against oppression, we are in fact a threat to the peace; the peace of the tyrant.  Or the peace of the fanatic.  Or the peace of the jihadist.

Simply by being a nation based in the principles – even the supremacy – of individual liberty, religious freedom and self determination we are a threat to the worldview of nearly every other nation on the planet.  By having the *power* to defend that view, we are certainly the greatest threat to the normal state of the world in recorded history.

That, I say, is a good thing.  If the price of being moral or just is to be so branded, then so be it.
