Geof Stone, author of Perilous Times, is guest blogging at Lawrence Lessig’s place.
Start here:

Can we learn the lessons of history? Can we avoid repeating the mistakes of the past? Given the pressures and fears of war, can we discipline ourselves both as individuals and as a nation to respect civil liberties even in a time of war? And is it even sensible to talk seriously about civil liberties in wartime? What do you think?
Then go back to the main blog page to pick up subsequent entries.
What do I think? In brief: our servants shall not infringe on our freedom.
I am, though, going to follow this thread closely and may have more to say as it progresses. And, I added Stone’s book to my Amazon Wish List (I’ll probably buy it when I place my last xmas order).
