This is a transcreation from the Indonesian language poem “Kebebasan”.
Poet Maman A Majd Binfas sees how freedom and the discipline of conscience are essential to living well.
The nanny states of The West take this away from people.

In almost all fields of human endeavour important in my life, freedom and discipline are inseparable partners for success.
Without freedom, both creativity and the ability to assess the truth are dead.
Without discipline, there is none of the strength and perseverance needed to protect freedom and develop its benefits.
So while this world is rushing to say “Please Stay Safe”,
I feel impelled to add, “Please Stay Free.
So we can stay strong.”
