Default Food for thought

On the 230th anniversary of the U.S. Independence Day, it is a good time to say a few words about the term most associated with the holiday: freedom.

What freedom means is "Do whatever you want provided you don't step on the rights of others."

A lot of free people don't know that. They leave out the second part think freedom means, "I can do anything I want."

What's the difference?

It's the difference between freedom of speech and freedom to spam.

It's the difference between listening to whatever you want and taking whatever you want to listen to.

It's the difference between a million other things, but they can all be described as the difference between thinking at least a little about "we" versus solely about"me."

After all, if you pay no attention to the rights of others, why should they pay any attention to yours?

Think about it this U.S. Independence Day.
