"And if America is to be a great nation this must become true. So let freedom ring from the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire. Let freedom ring from the mighty mountains of New York. Let freedom ring from the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania!

Let freedom ring from the snowcapped Rockies of Colorado!

Let freedom ring from the curvaceous peaks of California!

But not only that; let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia!

Let freedom ring from Lookout Mountain of Tennessee!

Let freedom ring from every hill and every molehill of Mississippi. From every mountainside, let freedom ring.

When we let freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, "Free at last! free at last! thank God Almighty, we are free at last!" -MLK, Jr.

I can tell by the goosebumps on my arms that he would've included Tunisia and Egypt as well. I cannot help but watch those videos and hear this over and over in my head. "Let Freedom Ring, Let Freedom Ring!!!" It is our inalienable right, a gift of God, for man to govern himself. The US Constitution merely acknowledges it. The power comes from God and it is in each and everyone of us. When we come together, it has an activation energy that is merely unstoppable, save from the ringing of the bell of peace and freedom due to every man, woman, and child born of this world. Let Freedom RIng, Let Freedom RIng!!!"

We need a Global Freedom is Ringing Day!!! All across the world on the same day. Let them know we stand behind them and those in the pursuit of freedom and democracy. Let them establish republics. Global republics means a loosening of the thread in the quilt of the UN. We stay home from work during the world cup and this is for the freedom cup of the world which is way more important. We don't have to go to Washington DC, we dont have to go to New York, London, Melbourne , Torontom, or Paris. We do it right here in our home towns. Every local news agency would cover it because it would gather attention and be viral. You see CNN, FOX, MSNBC, AP, Reutuers, etc. they can control what Virginia sees about California but they cannot control local channel 7, or local 25 or whatever. Simply everybody gather at all the bus depots and stops in your town. And agree to walk around your town just walk, sings songs saty on the sidewalks and don't get off the sidewalks. Let freedom ring. It will be on every station local and it will be on youtube and it will be viral. Shall we discuss?

Gift from god for all humans, huh?

Which god exactly?

However, you may purchase male or female slaves from among the foreigners who live among you. You may also purchase the children of such resident foreigners, including those who have been born in your land. You may treat them as your property, passing them on to your children as a permanent inheritance. You may treat your slaves like this, but the people of Israel, your relatives, must never be treated this way. (Leviticus 25:44-46 NLT)

Freedom is something earned, something fought for. Deitys have no care about mankind's structure or supposed freedoms. This is clear.

The more you argue that God gives people freedom, the less likely it is people will be free (considering structured religion is the biggest tool of enslavement ever created by man

This attitude has always led to tyranny. You must serve something higher than yourself. There is freeom in there. Do what thou wilt is a pathway to destruction. Please focus on the cause as you tried to spin away from the premise. Saty within the premise there. Respect other people's beliefs, widen your mind, and unite.

Do what thou wilt and harm none is freedom...not destruction

Consider your hypocracy. You make a thread about the positive aspects of freedom, then denounce the idea that people should think on the lines of freedom from mental institutions like religion...

Do what thou wilt and harm none. This is the only path of consequences

So MR. Laughner alledgedly did what he willed. People and Nihilists make bold statements in civilized societies. However if these individuals were surrounded by like minded misfits then I wonder what the world would look like. Perhaps the kleptocracies of Africa might be a great place. There is a continent full of might makes right and doing what they will. In fact, most dont call them leaders, they call them strongmen. Strength is in youth and it is very temporary. Most who claim do what thou wilt live in very peaceful societies. This thread was meant for freedom freedom to feel as you do and believe as you. And live with others who feel differently and believe differently but just like so many you made it about you.
