In the Name of Freedom...
An Assault on our Right to Choose
~written from the common sense perspective of The Winds of the Soul~
by Dr. Gregory C.D. Young, Ph.D.(Oxon.)
|Today, we have become a nation which has developed a lopsided understanding of "freedom," one without humility or Godly understanding. Now the idea of "freedom" is used synonymously with unrestrained selfishness, embodying the right to do anything that you have a mind to and in the time frame you want to do it, the right to fulfill any desire or act despite the possibilities of incursions into the rights and privileges of others.||
Today, a lot of people are speaking about "freedom" in ways that make us wonder whether we're all speaking the same language. It's a word bandied about so casually that much of its meaning has become deadly homogenized and made politically correct over time. It used to be that the notion of "freedom" couldn't be talked about intelligently without its prerequisites of responsibility and civility. It used to be a word that was used only sacredly, representing a higher and more advanced form of living and thinking, with rules unwritten but nonetheless deeply impressed within the heart along with the other things decent and uplifting. From such understanding was our Declaration of Independence sonorously penned, describing individual rights and truths that were claimed to be self-evident, having been established by our Creator.
But no longer. Today, we have become a nation which has developed a lopsided understanding of "freedom," one without humility or Godly understanding. Now the idea of "freedom" is used synonymously with unrestrained selfishness, embodying the right to do anything that you have a mind to and in the time frame you want to do it, the right to fulfill any desire or act despite the possibilities of incursions into the rights and privileges of others. Such definitions are noticeably lacking balance, common sense, and devoid of fairness. And because of such inequity, they can't possibly be right.
Nevertheless, many embrace this twisted understanding in an effort to justify their behavior and prepare for even more unguarded leniencies. That in itself should be enough of a red flag for most of us, but sadly, despite clear warnings, there has developed overwhelming criticisms against any who would question their unrestrained agendas. It seems that not only do they want the freedom to act as they want, but they also wish to be free from any legitimate criticism of same, arguing that criticism is an affront to their freedom as well. This new agenda claims that "freedom" can only exist under their tenure of direction, wherein our choices to choose are becoming less and less.

|No matter the proposal, if it is not aligned with their opinions, both the message and the messenger are summarily trashed. Their true agenda seems to be one of intolerance to anyone who doesn't support their position, despite the fact that they claim they are so liberal and flexible in their understanding. Their sense of the world includes the pejorative idea that only the old, the infirm, and those mentally handicapped would even dare to hold views contrary to their own, that one must be stupid or just not know any better to hold any ideas steeped in the conservatisms of our forefathers, who they fault for their historically privileged positions and other reasons.||
Inherent within this new direction is the persuasion that there really is no wrong committed when somebody is expressing their rights to be free, exclaiming that their "rights" to do as they wish should never be questioned because it falls under the realm of "freedom" and "personal expression" Their arguments attempt to paint the "old" ideas of "freedom" in increasingly unfavorable corners. They argue that the "old" is simply too restraining, too confining, too interrupting, too conservative (a liberal demeaning code word for "stupid" and "unsophisticated" and anybody that doesn't agree with them). In fact anybody that doesn't agree with their way of things is generally branded an extremist and/or right-winged. No matter the proposal, if it is not aligned with their opinions, both the message and the messenger are summarily trashed.

Yet ironically, these secretly esteem themselves above the rest of us, smarter than we are, more forward thinking and inspired than we, more capable of understanding what's best for us.
But they are poor students of history and choose not to learn from those who went before them. If they did, they would quickly see that that which preceded the historical fall of most nations has been a prevailing self-justified immorality and selfishness that attempts to rationalize itself while discounting and mocking anything that doesn't support itself. Indeed, many of the tenets some espouse today have already been paraded before mankind previously, all with the same false promise of prosperity and pleasure, and all consequently bringing ruin and carnage to civilizations foolish enough to follow their leadership. And just as witnessed in the past, today's pundits suffer from the same illusions. History does repeat itself. Believing themselves insulated from the failings that afflict us all, they blindly remain those most affected, nurturing a demented foolishness atop an untold proportion of arrogance.
So, hiding under the flag of political correctness and liberal freedom, the argue that any who wish to curtail their activities threatens all our constitutional rights. But ironically, in the name of their new and improved ideas of "freedom," our real freedoms are being continuously eroded, encouraging and sustaining wanton acts of self-centeredness that would have been considered outrageous years ago. Indeed, these so-called new "freedoms" often ignore the rights and privileges of others, choosing to trample on them instead.
Lest anyone believe that these criticisms are only for liberals alone and those on the extreme left, let me assure you otherwise. I believe this kind of reasoning is prevalent amongst us all. To be sure, no matter the political leanings, right or left, when many argue for their brand of freedom of today, it is with the demand that we must agree with and support their point of view alone without the Light of reason or inquiry allowed.
|And if we listen closely, there's generally an "or else" caveat attached. If we agree with them, then we're accepted as one of the gang, one of their special group. If we disagree, then they will slander and demean any who don't, calling us idiots, bigots, racists, or any other six-lettered word that is meant to demean and unfairly pigeon-hole the dissenter. Indeed, there are so-called conservative religious people that do the same things, namely, if you're part of them then everything is dandy, and if you're not then you're on the side of the devil. Their main agenda appears to make their way of doing things the law for everybody else, no matter how unreasonable it may turn out to be. This is not respecting freedom the way I know it.||

Not only is this ungodly, it purports a line of reasoning that is fundamentally twisted, no matter who is espousing it. Prejudice is prejudice. Close-mindedness is just that, closed! It suggests that either you're all good or you are all bad, and there are no other options. At the base of their position lies the spirit of anarchy, confusion, and misdirection. And these wolves have infiltrated many flocks. So let's be wary of how we categorize things....
Now let's put some color on this picture I've been painting. With the prevailing wind in our culture continuously changing, apparently embracing more lenient but more myopic understandings of freedom, here's just a partial list of my understanding of what these new ideas and malignant aberrations of "freedom" have come to mean:
(1) Foremost in my mind is that of abortion, where the freedom of new life is unilaterally supplanted by the willfulness of personal convenience in this country, to the tune of the holocaust of 1+ million babies per year being killed. The cry of "my body, my right!" completely overwhelms the stifled will of the genetically separate life coming from a completely different body that is being carried within the womb. This too is where, in the name of freedom, the biological father's rights to his seed have been summarily and silently stripped away from him without recourse.
(2) In the name of freedom, we can't pray in school or mention anything about the God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Christ who was openly and emphatically acknowledged by our forefathers to be the God of this country from the beginning, who was established to be the foundation and corner stone of our culture, having given us our fundamental value system which then became the basis of our Constitution, who has from the beginning made us strong, protecting this nation from its enemies, and blessing us with prosperity.
(3) In the name of freedom we are taxed at the rate of over 50% of our income without the people's approval nor the legalities of our Constitution ever being respected; moreover our elected officials have the right to waste half of all our tax money without accountability, and on top of that, give away billions in foreign aid while our own citizenry remain in need of help.
(4) In the name of freedom, we elect not to pay our armed services, the police and fire/emergency life-saving services the wages they deserve, but rather fund all other Politicians and Federal government employees with generous full retirement and health care programs that the average American can only dream about.
In the name of freedom, our legal system has become so arduous and conflicted that anything but freedom is served and only the lawyers financially prosper, as they encourage contention and the freedom to sue without responsibility, ensuring that the idea of "loser pays" (which would have the effect of reducing the number of lawsuits exponentially) will never see the light of day..... In the name of freedom, we cannot protect our National borders but must allow any illegal alien the right to stay here and have unequalled access to our tax-funded social welfare system, even though many of our own people, especially the elderly, go hungry, have no health care or appropriate housing.
(5) In the name of freedom, our publically owned air waves are "licensed" to a few elitist establishments and media moguls that help direct, govern, and undermine the moral seeding of our nation while refusing appropriate amounts of free airtime for those running for public office as well as other needed public service programs/advertisements.
(6) In the name of freedom, sexual immorality and other practices are being forced upon us as acceptable teachings for our children within our educational institutions, whereas the rights of a Judeo-Christian formed conscience must remain silent and subordinate to all other beliefs, creeds, and fashions.
(7) In the name of freedom, our public schools cannot be changed or redirected for our children's sake because it will upset the National Teachers Union and others similarly aligned, bureaucratic interest groups, forfeiting the education of our youth and further undermining the security of this nation for the future.
(8) In the name of freedom, our legal system has become so arduous, obstructed, and conflicted that anything but fairness is served and only the lawyers financially prosper, as they encourage contention and the freedom to sue without responsibility, ensuring that the idea of "loser pays" (which would have the effect of reducing the number of lawsuits exponentially) will never see the light of day.
(9) In the name of freedom, we cannot protect our National borders but must allow any illegal alien the right to stay here and have unequalled access to our tax-funded social welfare system, even though many of our own legal citizens, especially the elderly, go hungry, have no health care or appropriate housing.
(10) In the name of freedom, our government is now the largest single employer in the USA, while through over-regulation and government interference/control, small businesses that provide the vast majority of the gross national revenues, are being overly taxed and shut down.
(11) In the name of freedom, special interest groups have been allowed unrestrained powers of influence in Washington, and lobbyists (who are engaged in activities that are not only deemed illegal but treasonous in Japan) have greater power than the sum of all our votes.
(12) In the name of freedom, corporate executives manipulate stock values, award themselves excessive stock options, approve of accounting practices that abuse employee pension funds and enable them to be used as their own private capital supply, while in the same name, workers unions use member dues to unilaterally support their own political agendas.
(13) In the name of freedom, we get to continually play the ethnic race card whenever it's convenient and can advantage us, demanding reparation and compensation for unjustified events that occurred two hundred years ago, practice corporate extortion, create biased quotas, and other special considerations, especially if it can help make us feel superior to others and "get our share," fair or not.
(14) In the name of freedom we allow land and real estate developers to unconscionably clear cut trees and mutilate topographies, recklessly destroy vistas and natural ecologies while ruining our landscapes and beaches with cheap, poorly designed, treeless, homogenized developments where everything looks the same, creating eye-sores along our roads and highways, visually polluting our neighborhoods, towns, and cities, without greenbelts or people-friendly improvements, leaving their mess and the financial burden for the next generation to remove and redevelop.
(15) In the name of freedom and in the same vain, we allow other businesses to prosper and profit while they deface the beauty and glory of nature without consequence, protected by failed governmental sanctions and self-servingly entrenched bureaucrats..., and oh..., in the same name, we can pollute our homeland as well by tossing paper, bottles, cans, cigarette butts, and fast food containers out our car windows, making other people pick up our trash and pay for our destructiveness.
(16) Continuing on a more personal note, in the name of freedom, we get to blame everybody else for our problems, completely excuse ourselves and the choices we've made, and generally be irresponsible in everything that we do while we subject others to our demands, manipulating and coercing in order to do anything we need to do to get our own way, and that generally means in breaking rules if we can get away with them, and only following the letter of the law while ignoring the spirit or intention.
(17) In the name of freedom, we get to speak out loud and carry on conversations in movie theaters while the movie's playing, and be annoying, brash, harsh, and rude in all other public places as well, believing that our personal space extends beyond us ad infinitum.
(18) In the name of freedom, we get to take our unmannered and undisciplined children to places of worship, restaurants, and other public places so as to act out loudly and be generally disruptive, without worrying how it may affect or disturb others, because they're so cute and every body will understand that, of course....
|Are we so surprised? Is this not what selfishness and ungodliness is all about, where the repeating mantra of "me-me-me" is continually exalted, assailing the tenets of reason and understanding in the process, all so that the rights of others may become trampled beneath the procuring of their own? Isn't that really the reason behind all the slick arguments, distractions, and manipulations they impose on the rest of us so as to reduce the needs of others who don't agree with them to a pittance, to chaff in the wind, to a negligible and unworthy amount? Is not this done so as to justify making more room for their own need-base, making their perceptions the only socially acceptable and intellectually esteemed understanding in the process?||
(19) In the name of freedom, we can drive under the speed limit and not pull over to let others pass, not look where we're going, cut other people off, insist that everybody else has to slow down and allow us to merge at our own speed, and generally be inattentive while were engaged in other activities other than driving such as putting on makeup, reading, speaking on our cell phones, practicing road rage, playing car-subwoofers so that their noise annoys anyone within a block of our car, and make obscene gestures through the window to anyone we want, especially when some one calls us (beep-beep) on our bad driving... of all the nerve!
(20) In the name of freedom, we can stop walking anywhere we want to and physically bottleneck a public walkway or store aisle without any deference to others trying to maneuver around us---here our bad driving habits are simply transferred to the slower medium so we can intrude upon and annoy other pedestrians.
(21) In the name of freedom, we have the right to nuisance our neighbors by keeping loud barking dogs, playing loud music and TV's, trashing our yards and keeping them unkempt and un-policed, and collecting old cars, refrigerators, and other used furniture outside our house... because hey, it's our property!
As can be quickly determined by this short list (I'm sure you can add to it some of your favorite ironies), it seems that some people's freedoms are felt to be more important and special than others, no matter their social strata. Indeed, it seems that the rights for "freedom" are now just for the prideful, the willful, the egocentric, the self-absorbed, and the arrogant, there being no room at the Inn for the rest of us.
Are we so surprised? Is this not what selfishness and ungodliness is all about, where the repeating mantra of "me-me-me" is continually exalted, assailing the tenets of reason and understanding in the process, all so that the rights of others may become trampled beneath the procuring of their own? Isn't that really the reason behind all the slick arguments, distractions, and manipulations they impose on the rest of us---so as to reduce the needs of others who don't agree with them to a pittance, to chaff in the wind, to a negligible and unworthy amount? Is not this done so as to justify making more room for their own need-base, making their perceptions the only socially acceptable and intellectually esteemed understanding in the process? Is not this what really happens when they fashion their lies, to remove the threat of challenge of common sense by specifically discounting the rights and privileges of others who disagree with them? Is not this what they really want to do, to literally supplant another and even ignore the intelligence, wisdom, and equity that true freedom demands.
But under the surface of all this is brewing something even more sinister, something even more threatening. Central to anyone's liberties is the Freedom of Choice, the freedom to be able to choose what it is that we want to believe in, how we are to be governed, the right to choose what we want to do, etc. This freedom depends on their actually being a number of different options to choose from. But as our choices are becoming narrowed by the politically correct and the elitists of power, so then does the exercise of the power of our freedoms. The less choices we have, the less freedom we have.
Now here's where it becomes really interesting.... If we look closely at all of this, we can discern an unmistakable pattern taking shape. Couched within the particular "freedoms" they practice and exalt is the hidden agenda to muffle and extinguish, in particular, all those choices contrary to their own, even the banishing of those options that specifically challenge the legitimacy of their own choices, eradicating them from the inventory of other possibilities. In other words, every time they cry for their right and freedom to act, they not only correspondingly diminish the general freedoms of others in their competitiveness, but they specifically look to attack certain freedoms that prove most irritating and annoying to their selfish purposes. Their idea of freedom systematically seeks to diminish those freedoms that flies most in the face of their intentions, working to discredit those specifically, casually deep-sixing them out of public acceptance and our awareness. There is no true equity here, and they have no intention of making that fact known.
|And the things they wish to specifically attack, remove, or discredit from our awareness are not just some ordinary options remaining on the game board. These are options of a particular type and kind, namely, choices that embolden things that are "Good." Indeed, they would steal away from us and our culture all the possibilities and choices that lead us to Good, making goodness scarce in a land blighted by a famine of mediocrity, ethical homogenization, and evil.||
And the things they wish to specifically attack, remove, or discredit from our awareness are not just some ordinary options remaining on the game board. These are options of a particular type and kind, namely, choices that embolden things that are "Good." Indeed, they would steal away from us and our culture all the possibilities and choices that lead us to Good, making Goodness scarce in a land blighted by a famine of mediocrity, ethical homogenization, and the evil of misdirection. Goodness demands intelligence and wisdom, balance and moderation, patience and discipline, things that are an anathema for the "must have it all now generation." Goodness is a path that directly interferes with their "grab for all the gusto now" mentality. It's presence makes them feel uncomfortable, being pricked in their side. It is an affront to their unbridled need set, something that must be silenced at all costs.
Yet, no matter the thieving intentions of others and their consummate need to distract us, we all have the God-given right to freely access those choices that lead us to Goodness, as well as to have those choices protected. As matter of fact, these rights in particular appear to be at the root of what the Lord has outlined in His Ten Commandants and remain the basis of the laws of this country. Without doubt, the embracing of those things that are Good is what He would like to ensure, wanting to give us more than anything else all that flows from His Throne in consequence of making those right choices. These things (i.e., anything that would encourage our taking the path to Him) He would wish protected and esteemed more than any other. Come to think of it, maybe this is an even deeper reason as to why the Lord necessarily drew attention to this principle in His Commandments when He said, "Thou shalt not steal." Apart from the obvious reference to the rights of possession and property, I think He is telling us in no uncertain terms that those would steal away from us the opportunities for those choices for Goodness, and deter us from the path arguing that these infringe upon their rights, commit the ultimate theft and rape.
Perhaps, this is what real stealing is all about, the obfuscation and the obviation of the opportunities of Goodness to be practiced freely. Just think about this.... If it is possible to remove one from the opportunity of awareness of a better way, so that these ways become forgotten or become ridiculed as stupid fantasy, so much more certain is the citizenry's slavery and subjection to whatever dogma/doctrine, or whomever, is in power. Interestingly, this is after all the basic strategy of brain-washing, the mind-numbing techniques of cognitive impoverishment practiced by cultists of all sorts. By these means, our understanding of reality is actually stolen from our awareness, as we begin to sleep to the things once thought vital to our life. It is also the same stealing strategy that makes possible the treacherously blind following of Islamic militancy and the terrorist actions of suicidal bombings supported and egged-on by Muslim Mullahs (teachers). Interestingly, this was also the same stealing strategy of choice used by those governing in Nazi Germany, the USSR, and in Communist China. No mistake... it's the same!
All of these evil socio-dictatorships worked to deny and obviate the possibilities of Goodness by pretending and insisting that it really doesn't exist, obfuscating any reference or proof to the contrary. Is it any wonder that true religious freedoms are always severely curtailed if not ousted entirely by every one (not just some, but every one!) of these evil regimes? Do you see the common thread? In the name of their freedom, they work their selfish ends to justify every thing they do while slandering the right and the good of anything and anybody different around them. Tolerance is not allowed as they forever scheme to reduce the number of choices we have.
|When it can be discovered, those who practice this deceit are finally exposed as seeking to change the laws of Heaven---even to make "evil" into something that will be called "good," and then smearing what is truly "good" so that it becomes perceived as "evil" and distasteful. This is how they first get their foot in our door. So, we should be alarmed..., very alarmed..., when we see Judeo-Christian ethics and values becoming attacked, undermined, and tarnished, because those responsible for doing so are cut from the same fabric as the evil-doers, dissenters of true freedom who masquerade themselves as liberators and protectors of the people.||
But let's not be fooled into believing that this should now be easy to detect. It isn't, because of the layers of subterfuge often woven into the very fabric of its design. This strategy is generally very clever in its administration---its often conveyed first as something subtly sweet and desirable, as in the pretext of serving a public need. It masquerades itself in a public cause, something seemingly benign and and most worthy, such as conservation, care for wildlife, or the problems of drug abuse. But in all of its many orchestrations and no matter how it may use the cloak of beneficent public service, its true purposes are hidden from view.
When it can be discovered, those who practice this deceit are finally exposed as seeking to change the laws of Heaven---even to make "evil" into something that will be called "good," and then smearing what is truly "good" so that it becomes perceived as "evil" and distasteful. This is how they first get their foot in our door---by attempting to re-label and redefine the Good that is around us, making it socially undesirable and intellectually questionable. They would not think to attack such outright, but first seek to change our opinions and understanding of same through strategies of distractions and disinformation, slandering and belittling the principles of Goodness first, so as to weaken our social and personal resolve of their importance. They undermine the foundations of Goodness so that they may then gut the basis of its strength. This is how it has always been done. All while we silently observe without objection the name of God being taken from our schools, etc., etc. So, we should be alarmed..., very alarmed..., when we see long-established Judeo-Christian ethics, values, and sensitivities becoming attacked and undermined in these ways, because those responsible for doing so are cut from the same cloth as the infamous evil-doers, dissenters of true freedom who masquerade themselves as liberators and protectors of the people. Be very alarmed!
When somebody intentionally misdirects us away from that which is good, and instead offers us something that is evil, such is a clear act of stealing the bread meant for our mouths. And in doing this, their stealing is a crime that moves against us all. Indeed, in this they betray their true intent towards the rest of us. They have no interest nor inclination to honor anything about another in the slightest.
So what do we do...? Well, I don't believe it's possible to legislate morality, and I don't think we should even try. Laws have never been the substitute for the teaching of values and morality. But it seems to me that we all express a knee-jerk reaction to demand that we make more laws in this country when anything seems to be going wrong. Instead, perhaps we should seek for different solutions. Cultural problems are rarely handled appropriately with law-making. Sometimes, no matter the best intentions, our laws miss the mark and often hurt others, causing collateral damage to the innocent. Maybe if we first analyzed our problems better, saw the cause and effect of things more clearly, we might be able to marshal our resources more constructively. I believe education to be the key.
I, for one, think that there are already laws especially sufficient that can be found within our heart, Laws of direction and Life that are glorious and without precedent because they are given to us by His Hand, but only if we wish to make them available to us. Instead of silencing these ruminations, and supporting the politics and dogma which would have us removed from their influence, we should work to support anything that re-sensitizes these Laws to our awareness, hoping that all of us could read from its pages and find joy in this wisdom. These laws were of course much more salient to our perspective when we were younger, when we had all our children within us. Their guidance surrounded us within and directed our actions without. Subsequently, we were happier then, than we are now..., safer then, than we are now..., wiser then, than we are now. They gave us gentle direction that was fair and acted to preserve and protect us, as well as making us acutely aware of the rights and privileges of others. We can be so again, if we would take the chance and time to investigate and educate ourselves afresh with these inner feelings, even the Winds of our Soul. We can learn about them again, be restored to them again, be aware of the joy that they once gifted to us once again.
Without such a course, we are doomed to follow each other around in circles, believing that we are walking in freedom when in fact we are not, listening to the beat of others who are as lost as we are. Let us not be so blind. Let us resolve to find these simple but eternal truths alive within us once again. Let us no longer be fooled by the loudest voices amongst us and their clever ways in which they bring their tempting messages, but listen to the still, small Voice of His Spirit that promises a type of freedom and sureness that releases us from the bondage of fear, anxiety, and further torment. The truths inherent within the laws He has given us have been around since time began, and have been verified over and over again by the wise that have gone before us. Isn't it time that we take these testimonies to heart, and learn to refuse the failed fashions of yesterday and today? I think it is.... I pray it is.
