I think freedom means adults are free to make mistakes and to do stupid things that effect their own lives without fear of group or governmental intervention and legal repercussion of any kind. Freedom means adults do not need external authority over their own lives. In other words freedom means we are allowed to be as stupid as our creator intended us to be.
Why So Many Entangling Legal Strings Attached To The Idea of Freedom?
How can this be? How Is America The Home of The Brave and The Land of The Free?
The Cost of Mental Slavery
Human beings are error prone creatures forever paving a highway to Hades with seeming best intent. In a free society during a true age of reason, people discuss ideas and why a certain behavior may or may not be, a good idea. Freedom means laws and appeals to external authority are kept to explainable and logical levels. Freedom requires some kind of (adult) self reliance.
I also have a really strong feeling and am beginning to suspect that freedom also means we do not foot the tax bill for all sorts of governmental schemes.
Tax based wage slaves cannot claim to be free. Mass produced prison populations are probably a sign that we are not living in free societies as advertised.
Confusing sins with crime is sign of mass culturally imposed mental instability. Inhuman prison systems both literal and allegorical are immoral artifacts of a sick culture.
Too many associate fees, fines and jail time, the tools of democracy, with freedom.
