Today is an episode of TSP Rewind, commercial free versions of past podcast episodes.
Today’s episode was originally, Episode-1712- Finding Your Version of Freedom and was first published on Jan. 19th, 2016.
The following are the original show notes from that episode.
Yesterday was honestly a bit of a clunky show for me. Sorry if it seemed that way, you can’t always bat 1,000 you know. Anyway it ended up in a good place, it forced me to ask some hard questions and to realize a few things should be discussed here. Specifically in regard to freedom. Things we discussed many times but now we should discuss with a direct personal application.
Some things we must understand about freedom in order to have it
- First – no one can define freedom for you nor can you for another. This is actually anti freedom.
- Secondly – what some would consider total freedom others might consider total slavery and vice versa.
- Third – if you have to withdraw to a place you don’t want to be in order to be free you are not free.
- Fourth – if you are to have other people in your life your freedoms must be balanced with theirs.
- Fifth – if you are to have freedom, others must be able to do things you don’t like, do not approve of, etc.
- Six – the current state of the world is not freedom, so you will have to fight for every piece of it you take back, or you have to be strategic. There is no third option.
If the fourth sounds like socialism to you (as in the statist way) check your perception bias at the door. Here I am talking about close voluntary associations like a spouse, a family or perhaps may be an intentional community.
