    I chose freedom. I feel safer being free than having to follow a million rules.

    Humans being human. There's lots of stupidity out there, like trading freedom for perceived safety.

    I believe stupid statements are stupid. Thanks for the hyperbole, come back when you want to discuss this with any shred of intellectual honesty.
