59. I fully recognize the relationship
between my choices and public policy.

As an American citizen, I can vote, contact my representatives in the Senate and the House of Representatives, contact my local representatives, and help to inform my fellow citizens. So yes, my choices affect US public policy.

Now, were I to be an international busybody with delusions of grandeur who felt entitled to limit the rights of people in other countries--say for example, Canada--the relationship between my illegitimate choice and Canadian policy would be significantly less. Or, if you prefer, less significant.

But while your point may not apply to me, I am sure that there are some here who don't understand this. So good point, iverglas!

What's that, two points in as many days? You're on a roll!!!
