In Defense of Civil Liberties

I have always believed that organizations such as the American Civil Liberties Union play an extremely important role in America. Yet, I'm from time to time upset at some of the causes they take on, much as some people get upset at certain defendants even receiving legal representation. I make the comparison because it helps me to keep my feet on the ground.

Today's New York Times editorial - In Defense of Civil Liberties - reminded me once more of the important role of ACLU and similar organizations.
