When you wish you had a crystal ball, or not.
I listened to this while writing this post, try it while you read :o)
This post is the fourth of a series of fifteen posts about freedom during the COVID-19 crisis. These posts must be read in order, starting with the 6th post would make absolutely no sense to the reader. Enjoy reading and above all, enjoy reflecting.
What about individual freedom? Considering that we all pay for health care services in one way or another, how much do others become a threat? The United States is already one step ahead of managing this paradox. The second amendment allows any American to possess a weapon to defend the freedom of the State, as some would say, its citizens. The principle of freedom thus becomes very important because if a weapon can be used to defend the notion of a free state, the paradox only becomes even greater with additional measures.
A constraint can both protect and diminish the freedom of the state. This fragile balance evolves over time. A constraint that weighs heavily at one time could become heavier or lighter from a sociological point of view. Take, for example, not going to church on Sundays. At one time, that would have created doubt, even fear among members of the community, but today, it no longer has the same meaning. Dumping rubbish in the forest was at one time of little interest, but today, it can lead to fierce criticisms.
To be continued tomorrow…
