In his first foreign trip as Secretary of State, John Kerry has defended America’s civil liberties during his talk with German students. Among his remarks:: “The reason is, that’s freedom, freedom of speech. In America you have a right to be stupid — if you want to be. And you have a right to be disconnected to somebody else if you want to be.”

I agree, but do we have to exercise that right so frequently and so loudly?  Is it to make sure that we don’t lose it, in the same spirit as opponents of reasonable gun control measures emphasizing their commitment to their interpretation of the Second Amendment who turn up at political rallies with their weapons prominently displayed?
