July 4, 1776.
In Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the Continental Congress adopts the Declaration of Independence, which proclaims the independence of the United States of America from Great Britain and its tyrannical king.
While divided on many aspects, these men… this people were united in one common goal…
Having the ability to choose how to live is a God-given right. From the dawn of creation, Man has always basically had, free reign.
That one individual or a group of such should decide that they know better than most how Man should live… and place restraints on his
Especially when said powers that be, gain from such restraints.
Here it is 241 years later and I have to ask the question…
Are we as free as we used to be?
Do we have the ability to do and say as we please?
Can we live as free as we want; without some Governmental fat-cat bureaucrat telling us we can’t do this or that, as it might upset the collective balance?
I know that; at least for this moment, we still pretty much can say what we want… well, until we say something that upsets someone or a lot of someones as it goes against their Liberalistic socially-acceptable ideas… thus as I’ve often heard ” getting somebody’s panties in a wad”.
And we still can pretty much live as we want… well, until the way we do things goes against some legislative rule or regulation. Refer to the “panties in a wad” previously mentioned when thinking of how some of said Governmental agencies act when you do something you “shouldn’t”.
The way I see things… as long as a body doesn’t hurt someone else; as in physically harass, harangue or pester others around them and as long as said lifestyle is within all basic moral and God-given boundaries… how they choose to live…on or off the grid as much as they want… should not be an issue…
And should not be a source of revenue to previously mentioned Governmental agencies. Can you say permits and fines for not having such?
After all… are we still not the land of the free…
Particularly when where we live; outside corporate boundaries, gives us the ability to do such?
Something to ponder on this 241st Fourth of July celebration.
