OUR FOREFATHERS WERE CREATING A NATION
AND CALLED FREEDOM AT ALL COSTS.
MODERN RULERS ARE STEALING A NATION & CALL
SECURITY-CONTROL AT ALL COSTS.
LET OUR CALL BE ONE OF BROTHERHOOD
AND LOVE.

What do you believe
What do you feel
If you tell me you do not
feel free, then you must not
believe you can be; lest you ARE
Do you hold the bars of the cage
while the door of freedom stands
open inside you.

Will you be in the world & not of it.
Release the old & embrace the NOW PRESENCE


LOVE

I am down for some revolutionary actions for sure. I was born free and I will die free even if it means fighting to the end. Let me qoute a true patriot: "It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace — but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death! "

The governments of the world are slowly taking away from our list of RECOGNIZED freedoms.

who will give you your freedoms?
your father or mother,your sons or daughters?
maybe your friends or neighbors?
perhaps your politicians or your employers?LOL
imaginary friends(religion) or inanimate objects(constitutions)?

The only rights you have,the ONLY freedoms you get are the ones you TAKE for yourself.

So grow some reproductive organs and do what is right!
or not,as far as I'm concerned you have every RIGHT to be a slave if you WANT to be one.

true freedom is not given or taken away
it is not owned or subject to conditions
it is something you find
when you find the truth
you realize you're free
you have been
you are
you will be...
...free
=======================

May we think of freedom, not as the right to do as we please, but as the opportunity to do what is right.
Peter Marshall

A friend is someone who gives you total freedom to be yourself.
Jim Morrison

Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves.
Abraham Lincoln

Freedom is not worth having if it does not connote freedom to err.
Mohandas Gandhi

There is no such thing as part freedom.
Nelson Mandela

History does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid.
Dwight D. Eisenhower

You can't separate peace from freedom because no one can be at peace unless he has his freedom.
Malcolm X

Freedom is the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.
George Orwell

The greatest enemy of individual freedom is the individual himself.
Saul Alinsky

I know but one freedom, and that is the freedom of the mind.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery

I wish that every human life might be pure transparent freedom.
Simone de Beauvoir

=======================
Jonah

Wicked seeds seek for a sign
Worm and blight, withered vine
Cruel sun blasting on their head
Without love, the wind is dead

But anger is not heaven's way
God sent love to save the day
Shining Son on cursed tree
Broken hearted slaves set free

What would you do if you had freedom? What can't you do now that you could do then?

Absolute freedom is called anarchy. All men are equal, so according to American law, any rights that you have are also given to those who would seek to do you harm. The more freedom you have, so do those who would abuse those freedoms. Its a slippery slope. We are still better off than most places. If you want a taste of true freedom, go to Somalia. They are pretty much free to do as they wish.

Good Observation - free will absolutely does implicate freedom to both sides of the relative spectrum, bad & good, and thus we see this world in the current state.
However, the purpose of the OP was to compel readers to consider inner freedom...that is, not the freedom to do anything in a society in turmoil, but the freedom to BE a sovereign human being, integral to the species.


LOVE
