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 eleventh 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.
You get to a certain point where you have to choose between controlling people or having individual freedom. This is one of the axes of political science. Although I’m not interested in political science in the context of low partisan politics, the fact remains that absolute freedom is immediately associated with anarchism and absolute control with fascism or other even worse terms. You will understand that these two terms have long carried a stigma and can only inspire the worst moral values, but from a Cartesian point of view, they are only labels stuck on concepts.
The world is not linear, not in time nor in nature. A good man can be good in the morning and bad at noon. He can be good to his family and bad to others. Nothing is entirely absolute and this lack of clarity is very difficult for each of us to experience. It makes things unpredictable, something we hate. Let’s learn to appreciate uncertainty instead of fear. Isn’t the plotter who is mastering the art of parkour a living example that the body and mind’s agility, although not without risk, allows for achievements for both the eye and the mind?
To be continued tomorrow…
