Bill Whittle has an enormously important essay (it's in two parts) on the subject of sanctuary. It examines the wider civilizational concept of sanctuary, a safe place for people to do as they like without Hobbes' "nasty, poor, brutish and short) state of nature impinging on their daily lives and also how various laws of war create their own form of sanctuary. He examines how the war on terror is to a great extent a war on sanctuary.

Read the whole thing.
