Inspiring Quotes of the Week...

Liberty

Commentary by Peter Shepherd
Liberty
“If it were felt that the free development of individuality is one of the leading essentials of well-being... there would be no danger that liberty should be undervalued.” ~ John Stuart Mill
Liberty gets ignored when we don't much care about stretching our barriers, when the safe option is to remain behind the fence, to conform. But what was ever achieved, really, by that strategy? And what well-being do we have without self-expression?
“If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.” ~ Henry David Thoreau
We are each of us unique individuals, so of course we have purposes and goals of our own, or those of others that we identify with. In the name of liberty we need to make room for others to follow their own path too.
“Art is individualism, and individualism is a disturbing and disintegrating force. There lies its immense value. For what it seeks is to disturb monotony of type, slavery of custom, tyranny of habit, and the reduction of man to the level of a machine.” ~ Oscar Wilde
Creativity depends on the freedom to discover new choices. As Ai Weiwei said, "Liberty is about our right to question everything."

“To be free is not merely to cast off one's chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.” ~ Nelson Mandela
The lonely path is not a happy one. There's no true liberty ourselves if we restrict that of others, because history has shown that the oppressed eventually break free and are no friend to their repressor.
“We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” ~ Thomas Jefferson
As Bob Marley said, "Better to die fighting for freedom then be a prisoner all the days of your life."
Liberty

The Rise of Collectivism ~ by Jon Rappoport

What is the primary power of the individual? It is the power to create. If that idea seems shop-worn or vague, it is only because the creative force of the individual has been purposefully downgraded from a hurricane to a drizzle. The force is now viewed with a blank stare of non-recognition—or it has been transferred over to used car salesmen and other hustlers who have rebranded themselves as self-improvement gurus, who reduce their proclamations to the language of infomercials. But the individual does not have to buy any of this. The individual can refuse. He can take up a different position. He can invent from the platform of his own freedom. Continues...
