|19th-century depiction of Battle of Lexington|
How many people need die to preserve liberty generation after generation? That really depends on how many people still remember what liberty is. If we all remember, then no blood need be shed. Even if only most of us remember, liberty can be defended without a single shot being fired. Sometimes all that takes is a symbolic reminder.
At Weihsien, not a single shot had to be fired, because the prisoners believed in the symbol of the American flag on the plane that brought seven men to the camp. It was not those men who freed the internees in the Courtyard of the Happy Way. It was what they stood for.
