But isn't that a basic issue for at least some of
those who want them posted: how can we divorce
ourselves from the past?  How can we ignore the roots,
good or bad, from which our culture has grown?  Even
for one who doesn't follow a judaeo-christian-islamic
path, the Ten C's are a fundamental reality that has
helped shape our society, and to be ignorant of them
can hardly be considered enlightened.
