What is our role in gaining true freedom? Is it even possible?
If you want revenge, take it, it is sweet and in your grasp. If you want to be bad, be as bad as you want to be. If you want to be good, do what you think is good. Freedom is being able to make any choice you want and from that, without any outside interference, be able to enjoy or fix that choice.
The civilizations of this time are still getting there but total freedom will never enter into any government on this planet. Why? Because freedom is your choice. It is not the governmentís choice on your fate; it is your choice on what your destiny will be.
Common thought is that a boy may not hit a girl. Freedom is for a guy to go ahead and hit a girl anyway. That might sound blunt, but thatís the truth.
Freedom is what you want it to be. Freedom is choice. The people of this age will never experience that kind of feeling. Only those who are ready for freedom can endure it. Why? I ask it again. Why would someone not be able to handle that? Because choice can decide oneís fate-good or bad- and some do not like to face drastic decisions.
Life can be full of choice, yet civilizations do not accept this. Only those who are ready for reality can think straight in freedom.
People want power. Itís part of human nature. You may not think you want power, but once it is received, you enjoy how it quenches that thirst for power. The feeling may not be strong, but it is there, just like an instinct. But sorts of powers involve followers and once that comes into play then there is no more freedom. That is why freedom in any civilization cannot happen. The government will tell you not to hurt another being. So, you are bound and cannot have freedom with that kind of statement.
But, contradicting that statement, freedom is power. From power comes choices. From choices comes knowledge and experience. From knowledge and experience you receive rewards. And from rewards comes power. So, on that thought, and on that statement, this is the other power that I mentioned before. If people want power, then they can resort to having freedom. But, freedom is not possible while living in a modern society.
Freedom can be a topic to be argued about for hours with no gain. There is no way to find a loophole through fact and reality. That is blunt, yet true . Freedom is the best thing, but only someone trained to think clearly can handle freedom. By thinking clearly, I mean to say before freedom is given and after it is received.
