The five great lies of the
We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.
In the context of the increased security measures that we deal with every day as a result of the war on terror, I said freedom. By abandoning the freedom that we hold dear, we became less like ourselves and more like our enemies. But to be even more specific, the illusion of safety is worthless. We are actually no more in danger from terrorism than we were ten or twenty years ago. 9/11 was an incredible longshot and we could have continued, without changing anything, without actually being in more danger. Now we have a substantially increased amount of scrutiny on ourselves, with minimal (if any at all) effect on whether or not we'll actually be subject to a terrorist attack by foreigners.
Freedom and safety are both very important, but the illusion of safety is worthless, and sacrificing freedom to allay a panic is disastrous.
Liberté. Égalité. Fraternité.
Listen to your conscience....and let it sink in.
