Total freedom is not possible unless you live by yourself, and isolated.
However, Within the constructs of a society of people, the original constitution of the USA and bill of rights offers the most freedom one can expect
in their lifetimes if they plan on being a social creature at all. While not perfect, these documents strike an important balance. They protect the
rights of the individual without infringing on the rights of the whole. And they protect the rights of the whole without infringing on the rights of
So. As originally intended. The constitution of this country guarantees each individual the most freedom they can reasonably expect to have as a group
with a common goal. “LIFE, LIBERTY, AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS.”
Anytime a large group of people live together, certain freedoms must be sacrificed to protect the freedoms of others. And I believe that as a whole,
the citizens of this country have always understood that. It’s called common courtesy and respect.
Unfortunately, there are those who don’t care about your freedoms. They only care about their own. And most of them are generational politicians and
the uber wealthy. And they use every tool at their disposal to deceive you into giving up rights that were guaranteed by the CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC
you were born in.
(OUR FORM OF GOVERNMENT IS NOT A DEMOCRACY! Democracy is nothing more than mob mentality and rule! Democracy is majority rule! Democracy cares
nothing for the rights of the individual! It has nothing to do with freedom.)
These people have accomplished their goals by methods too numerous to list here. But we can look at a few points. One could say the most valuable
resource or commodity any one person owns is their time. Whatever you do in life requires your time. So then, one way to limit the rights and the
freedoms of any group of people is to steal their time. Or deceive them into giving it to you.
How is that accomplished? Easy, if you are in a position that gives you the ability to restructure the lives of millions. National Debt. Taxes and
Fees. And fear.
The more time an individual must relinquish to pay the withholdings from their wages, and the fees charged on sundry items in our society, the less
time and resources they have to pursue the aforementioned “Life, Liberty, and Pursuit of happiness.” The more time an individual must forego in
the quest to protect themselves and their loved ones from a perceived enemy, the less time and resources they have to enjoy their rights and freedoms.
You name the perceived enemy. There are many.
How many ways have you been deceived into giving up your valuable time and resources?
How many times have your resources been stolen from you against your will?
How much freedom have you given up freely, or been deceived into relinquishing?
