Today I want to talk about freedom.
I agree, Glenn, with perhaps two exceptions. There must be some laws that protect against someone' right to swing their fist interfering with someone else's right to not have their nose hit. For example, that includes not being able to kill your spouse if you disagree, run a red light and maybe hit a pedestrian, drive drunkenly, not kill your children (including abortion) if you decide that you do not want to be a parent, after all, and the like. Also, I notice you have not mentioned responsibility. Montessori categorized responsibility as the ' other side of the coin of freedom'. Unless we want anarchy and the "law of the jungle", there must be responsibility accompanying freedom. I would love to hear what you think about responsibility. It is refreshing that you speak out about what you perceive and think.
Thank you GLENN for Accepting YOUR F R E E dom and ASKING us to Accept OURs. We need to DO IT together. That is what CIVILisation is. MUTUAL exchange. Of COURSE LOVE is the K k E e Y y :-)))
Right on Glenn....I agree 100%. Am going to my state capitol April 30th to join the Freedom Rally, as are most (or all) of the 50 states.
I agree with your approach to these difficult topics.
Glenn, Good Job.
First off, I want to know when I am going to benefit from my 'white privilege'? <sarc> DH and I just had an interesting convo today regarding critical thinking and thinking for ones self. He was questioning what we are 'being told' about the eastern European situation. We had a great discussion.
While we have never 'met', Glenn, I have to agree with every point made here. One point I made to DH was that there are too many today who can't or won't think for themselves these days. And the saddest part is that one can no longer engage them in respectful and thoughtful discourse. They shun cognitive dissonance. They cannot discern that there could be an alternative reasoning. Okay, some ppl are just freaking stupid. I had to get that off my chest LOL
Well said and I hope people take it to heart!
VERY WELL SAID! WONDERFUL AND FREEING TO THINK FOR ONESELF!
Well said, Glenn.
