There’s something the Founders, the minds behind the Enlightenment, and the Fathers of the Church knew that we have forgotten: that freedom does not mean the ability to act without concern for consequence.
Today, we imagine that freedom means the allowance needed, the space necessary, and the requisite protection to behave as if the natural world is our blunted playground with soft floors, nerfed corners, and rounded edges.
This is wrong.
True freedom is the freedom to act in accordance with the world as it truly exists. It is the freedom to act prudently, to seek and follow the truth to the best of our ability, and to sharpen our tusks, like Aesop’s wise boar — in preparation for unforeseen danger.
The West has been fed a steady diet of rights-rhetoric for over 100 years, and it is poisoning us. It’s gone so far that we conflate an ideal situation with a situation we have a right to enjoy. That would mean someone else has a duty to provide it… and that, friends, is the ideology of slave masters.
We must reeducate ourselves about the true nature of rights and freedom before the debauchery annihilates any possibility of saving the West from destruction.
