What is it about Boston that makes it, again and again throughout our history, the crucible for civil liberties and human progress? Is it the free-thinking environment fostered in the universities? Our proximity to Europe? Something in the water? Or is it a lingering reaction to the stain of the witch trials or our Puritan settlers?
