from Oxford UK ? ,lol he's not taking his meds again .
"You'll find that there are places where you can live free in this world. There are ways to preserve your dignity, your privacy, your livelihood. You'll find that you can build great camaraderie and mutual trust with like-minded souls because you share the same values, not the same color passport."
name one =
or to be more precise one that has health care and all the trapings of this modern world , sure I could move to the rain forest ,
take up blow pipe lessons , trying to remember to blow not suck on the pipe , but how do you catch toad for the poison , ?
and how do you recharge the laptop , would I enjoy 20 ways to cook a monkey , the thought of no shower or aftershave dosn't apeal
either , but I guess without playboy magazine after a while the local unwashed hottie would begin to apeal , even the bone through the nose might even seem cute , given time ,
there is no such thing as a free lunch IMHO,
also not sure on the Oxford UK bit , it's a Uni town, fees $35,000 p.a. , certainly no free living there ,
unless he is on the social assistance payments then it's free living paid for by others less gifted ,( those working for a living )
French revo set France back a 100 years ,folk at the time didn't find it exciting , they carried on starving under a near comunist regime
and made France what it is today ,
"Does a free society saddle unborn generations with obligations they never signed up to bear?"
indeed a free society does just that , it's citizens are free to act responsibly and plan wisely for it's future generations,
a Free world ? well it's a darn sight freer than it's ever been ,
but good luck to those that want to turn the clock back to the good old days , personaly I don't fancy coming back from a hard days hunting dinner to find the wife and kids have been abducted by muscle bound neighbour, and a new neandathal living in my cave ,
and to top it all I couldn't phone a friend for advice ,
did this come from a Oxford Uni debate ?, which I doubt , everone would have walked out and gone down the pub,
at lest slack Alice the barmaid understands the principle of free at the point of supping up, and the bill arrives end of the month ,
just my thoughts on this whimsical thread ,
Upon this gifted age, in its dark hour,
Rains from the sky a meteoric shower
Of facts... they lie unquestioned, uncombined.
Wisdom enough to leech us of our ill
Is daily spun; but there exists no loom
To weave it into fabric.
