How Will You Change The World?

Freedom is defended when you opt to rework the content of your character. The individual wins meaning while society earns the right to life, liberty and the happiness of pursuit.

Choosing instead to retool society, results in the destruction of your representation (your soul). The individual becomes nihilistic, whilst society becomes totalitarian.

Those of us who choose to work upon the content of our character, must persuade and constrain those who wish to retool society. And we must do it through strength of character.

Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom and then lost it have never known it again.Ronald Reagan
