Freedom is more than a word

I viewed a funeral of America in words accepted of ignorant hopefuls to regain a past that never belonged to them. Words not from poets of metaphors, or ideological philosophers, nor preachers of myth, but the nominee of the GOP (Republican Party). Words from a man such as I. A dreamer who dreamed dreams of being the ultimate ego, not becoming. There was no speculation of what happened before he became consciously aware of himself. No theorizing about a God, nor intentions concerning “WE THE PEOPLE,” and how America came to be the great nation it is today. I saw a man eulogizing over the death of unity and comradeship, and the merging of freemen and slaves, whether to debt or chains, from all nations coming together and building railroads, cotton mills, steel and coal institutions to make America the greatest nation of the modern era of mankind.

You have seen this man come into the consciousness of the destitute by bragging about how much money he has, his upbringing and education, his climb into the nation’s consciousness, then the world. You have seen this man’s achievements and the blood his feet and legs are covered with from stepping and squashing the skulls of those who believed his money and greed would allow them, should they follow him, to become providers of their families and leave a direct path of light for the next generation to follow and become better people.

But freedom is more than a word. Freedom is a push of ones own dreams and hopes of achieving goals which will better not only the space one occupies, but the earth and the world for all people. Freedom is the liberation of the ignorant of doing nothing by taking individual responsibility to know each individual has the power within themselves to do what is right for all mankind, which will achieve far more goodness for America, and one world, nation, state, and community.

Never give power to anything a person believes is their source of strength - jufa

@jufa,
Freedom is priceless. Freedom unveils one to their potential to achieve maximum feats that can affect people. No one can become optimally useful to others except if he has a good measure of freedom.

I have no words to define freedom. Ask the meaning from prisoner? Ask the meaning from Cage bird? Ask the meaning from Tree? Ask the meaning from slaves?. It is priceless and can only be feel.

@avivaknin,
Freedom is not taking possession of any thought within ones living consciousness. Taking possession is stopping freedom from flowing free, which then chains ones to the thought of self-possessiveness, which is impossible. Thoughts are free.

It's funny Glennn... someone is thumbing you up and me down. I am enjoying our duet.

In a completely sane world, madness is the only freedom. – J. G. Ballard

Yes, you did get the thumbs down. I'll offer some lyrics that are bound to get me thumbed down, too:

But feelin' good ain't good enough for me;
I'll need a million dollars, maybe three.

@Glennn,
The word "Freedom" is funny, because it means pretty much whatever you want it to mean.

People on the left talk about the freedom to have same-sex marriages. People on the right talk about the freedom to prevent same-sex marriages. Some people in Cuba say Freedom is overthrowing the Castro regime, to others defending the Castro regime is defending freedom.

Anyone who believes anything believes that they are on the side of freedom.

And in that way, we are all free.

A lot of people believe that money makes them free. Are they right, or are they wrong?

English is broken; there is no way to tell the difference between "free speech" and "free beer".

How can you be free of this need as long as you possess the thought?

@jufa,
But where did the thought come from?

Objects nor subjects define freedom. Everyone has freedom of thought, what breaks thoughts into bits and pieced is the fact everyone interpret their thoughts according to their experiences, as displayed in this thread. Nonetheless, thoughts cannot be confined by interpretations of experience, for the freedom of thought comes by one being able to think freely objectively or subjectively on what they experience.

@jufa,
Then freedom is a state of mind. And that state of mind is dependent on what you choose to acknowledge as well as what you choose to ignore.
