    A related problem is the ancient problem of sorites. You have a heap of wheat. You remove one seed. and another, and another. When is your heap no longer a heap? It is a problem of definitions. You can hear a lot of these type arguments of Faux. Laws get passed that mean your total freedom is limited. For example closing loop holes for private sales of guns at gun shows without need of background check. The argument is that Americans' freedoms have been fatally abolished.

    The ancient Greeks must have had a lot of time on their hands.

    Naw. Americans have just found new ways to dig holes in their legacy. They're using the dirt to bury their freedom.
