GOVERNMENT LOCKDOWNS and BALANCE and FREEDOM

A times I believe that all people and governments would be better off if they studied Exodus 7-11 more closely and stopped trying to fight the Coronavirus, accepted that the planet is over populated and that herd immunity is the way to go.

Of course this is a radical position and I do not always strongly adhere to it myself. Let alone want to force it on anyone else. I have lots of doubts about these occasional beliefs of mine.

There is a name for having some beliefs which are subject to change.

It is called intellectual freedom.

It means not wanting to force almost any human belief of mine onto other people and not wanting other people in this unknown territory of the Coronavirus Era forcing most of their beliefs on me.

What should we do next?

Does anyone really know?

In this state of uncertainty, why are we letting so many freedoms die?

God knows best.

And I am not God.

In Two Minds: Conscientious Life

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.

PLEASE STAY FREE

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.”
