“It is whispered by some that only by abandoning our freedom, our ideals, our way of life, can we build our defenses adequately, can we match the strength of the aggressors. … I do not share these fears.“— Franklin D Roosevelt’s fireside chat of May 26th, 1940.
Foro on Freedom: today our freedom is contingent on us not screwing up the planet in some irreparable way, because after that, there’s no freedom for anyone, and the few resources that are left are going to wind up in the hands of the most powerful. There are only two ways that people can look at this 1) they plan on being that powerful person who controls everything or 2) we (as in humanity all together) act in order to avoid it getting that bad in the first place. The first option is for sociopaths. Don’t be a sociopath.
