I really don't see how it can be anymore. What with so much censorship in the media since the super-bowl, and the patriot act, and the anti-gay movement. Maybe its too free, too free so the powerful are using their freedoms to overcome the weak. For example corporate freedom has been expanded and so corporations now walk all over the individual. And this mentality is allowed and perpetuated by the fear of anything that isn't 100% capitalist, and peoples misconceptions that what is good for a company must be good for America. Without the slightest thought that maybe what's good for consumers and employees might be good for companies.
