can understand the terrible fascinating power
of the hope of freedom
to those who are not free."

    Wouldn't it be nice to be free again. To choose wether to have health insurance or not.

    There are despotic slaves at heart (by way of example, those patrons of compelled compliance, license, victimless crimes, larceny with impunity [income / property / life taxes, funny money, etc.] and non-recognition of inalienable rights / natural law). There are the noble free (few having ever tasting a full liberty).

    This is why those that have 'freedom' handed to them on a platter shortly lose it. Freedom must be won by every individual and must learn how to keep it.

    Yet Liberty and Freedom are a responsibility, to be maintained. For some, they have not physical freedom, nor economic. Also those today who would attempt to take away spiritual freedom/liberty of the individual. Economic liberty is always the first to fall, when under siege of corrupt elite rulers. It is still possible to have all three but history shows it to be short lived, hence the hope of restoration. WWG1WGA to MAGA to KAG 2020
