I have this problem with wanting to be left alone when it comes to regulation and restrictions in my personal life. Not just wanting to be left alone but seemingly HAVING to be left alone. I don't think it's any secret here, or anywhere within my social life be it forums, work, within the family or close friends, that I prize freedom above most anything else. There are a few things I do prize more than freedom but I would expect that they are things that most prize the most too so I don't take that as any sort of downplay to my appreciation and defensiveness toward my freedoms and those of everyone else, EVERYONE else.That being said I take very deep "offense" (irony incoming)when people start suggesting limiting freedoms of people. Freedoms that are inalienable and common sense.I live in the USA, the "freedom" country that has just short of socially alienated any concept of freedom at all which is beyond ironic.I say this for several reasons and with a heavy heart as it seems everywhere I look someone is saying, "that offends me so it shouldn't be allowed and should be enforced by law" (which just about no one understands, law that is... which I just may make another thread about) Offending people shouldn't be something anyone aims for but in a dynamic world where so many cultures and perceptions of moral priorities are focused so closely together, well it happens.With our instant communication tools this has become an epidemic problem and one that many people are more than willing to profit from, instigate and even use to hurt other people completely ignoring their own capability for compassion or humility.The most harped on freedoms in the main stream or socially illuminated debate forum have been extremely troubling. No right to self defense, no right to travel, no right to self medicate, no right to freedom of speech or expression, no right to life even.When someone comes to you and tells you that you don't have the right to do something they are presuming they have "authority" over you. Yet our common law, US constitution and religious teachings all brazenly express that NO man has authority over another. This is universal, not just in the US. This is natural, nature, truth.When you AGREE that you don't have the right to do something you make the conscious choice whether its under threat, duress or coercion to contract against your own freedom.I'm going to hit some more points following this. Just in case that wasn't enough words for you.
