Energy:  "The availability of energy being critical to the functioning of a free society, the right of the people to local power generation shall not be infringed."

Transportation:  "Access to spontaneous travel being fundamental to a free society - the right of the people to personal motor transportation shall not be infringed."

All of these rights have two things in common:  They place power, and responsibility, into the hands of the people directly, distributing power from centralized elites to a broader and more defensible base, and they all involve accepting a degree of loss of short-term or personal safety, in the defense of our long-term security and liberty.

As the time comes to debate the appropriate, "modern" interpretation of the U.S. Second Amendment and the right to bear arms, let us at least do so with the understanding of what it was I believe the founding fathers had intended to give us - the right to stand, with our very own hands on the wheel, at the helm of our own ship, despite the dangers such freedom may entail.
