I watched this the other day with my 9 year old...I don't think he quite "got it", even though I tried to explain the point...will have to work with him on that.

That's the problem with (comprehending) freedom - it's abstract.
Kings, commands, immediate transitions from a wish (a plan) to intended outcome are graphic and easy to grasp.
Don't worry, Laura, most grown ups don't get it. Which is why they love kings and commands and vote for Obama.
