The Devil is in the Detail

Home Secretary Alan Johnson says that loyalty to our propositional state over terrorists and wartime enemies is required of all.

When political freedom is an essential part of the proposition loyalty is not owed to a propositional state. A state which cannot reasonably demand its citizens side with it against enemies will not long survive as enemies multiply like rabbits within and without.
