I have seen many a post more foolish that was intended in all seriousness.
My point is that neither your first nor second arguments are a paradox,
nor do they relate to one another. I agree that many people may not
see their freedoms being whittled away, simply because they are being
whittled away, as opposed to eliminated all at once. If that is your
point however, it was unclear. Apologies if you were upset by my response.
