The whole 'free and open dissent' thing, though, is open to question. Surely meaningful opposition requires an equal footing, and dissenting voices in America are totally marginalized in the press. Only where they cannot be controlled are they available. Yes, you can say things in the the States that you could not say in Soviet Poland, but only when it doesn't matter.
