    What is the nature of freedom?

    It is an unassailable natural claim against all others, including the government.

    Stated differently, it is your unconditional right to think as you wish, to say what you think, to publish what you say, to associate with whomever wishes to be with you no matter their number, to worship or not, to defend yourself, to own and use property as you see fit, to travel where you wish, to purchase from a willing seller, to be left alone.

    And to do all this without a government permission slip.
    "I would rather suffer under imperfect freedom, than languish under perfect control".

    There's that old "do no harm" chestnut which should be mentioned.

    Freedom to do what is right, act in the best interests of our community and not be a cock.

    We are all free to do whatever we want.


    It is our choice to accept the rule of law or not to.

    We know the pro's and con's of doing either, and we decide what works best for ourselves.

    The law is not perfect, it is a good thing and a bad thing.
    Some blindly follow it to the letter, some break every rule it has.

    My life is mine and mine alone, my time on this planet is limited and not repeatable. Nobody rules me.
    I choose to live my life with my best interests in mind.

    There have been some things that I have to give in to (the bullshit firearms law for one...)
    But overall, do good and be good.

    Good people don't need laws or of any kind to be good.
