Rights

Posted by Jesse on March 2, 2007

Assume you have no rights for a moment.
Logically, would you not be a slave?
Ok. Forgive me. I just cannot imagine that to be possible.
Because…
They may kill you. True. But your mind is your own.
It is impossible to fathom slavery as any kind of truth.
The very impression of freedom is inherent.
Without some form of supertechnology, complete control fails to exist.

Now. Take the complete opposite of absolute slavery.
You have unlimited freedom.
Wow! Unbelievable. Godly. Absolutely dangerous.
Not hard to imagine.

Extremes are the natural borders in our mind.
Being human, we oft compare this to that, n that to this. Ad nauseum.
We do this to frame the debate.

When u exercise your rights, your freedom, you run the risks of infringing upon the lives of others. What holds this in balance?

We already answered this when considering alsolute slavery.
The very impression of freedom is inherent.
And we have a concept that we employ to maintain balance.
Basically, a tool. We call it justice.

Justice requires responsibilty.
Responsibility is antecedent to any sort of organization.
Both to secure us from chaos and tyranny.
Consequently, we institute government.

This is the reality:
We are sensitive to the nature of things.
Our conscience is fortunately cognizant of freedom.
Let us have the wit to use it wisely.
