Human Freedom: But Why Are So Many People So Afraid?

June 26, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 207

Fear is one thing But antagonism, hostility and outright hatred would appear to be something different altogether But why do so many people seem to be so afraidof human freedom?

Certainly the answer is not always a simple one But perhaps people have been conditioned to believe that they are always right And if this would happen to be true conformity to one's ideals would seem to be the only logical choice

But truth is not always a simple thing And the interpretation of human values is not always an objective matter And as much as this may provoke disdain,in a conservative mind it may be better to promote tolerance as there will always be a special place for human dignity

In our complex multi-cultural world I am afraid that the prospect for consensus on all social matters would be an unlikely thing So why not take a liberal point of view? In a just society there need not necessarily be a complex set of laws

Violating the rights of others cannot be allowed Because living a life in accordance with one's personal values is an important thing But let us not take this matter lightly Of course a highly evolved society is something that we want to have And individual liberty is a supreme valuethat every thinking person should espouse

So let us engage our minds and have a proper debate An unprejudiced, unencumbered person is something that good people can work to cultivate And in our global world we should begin to consider the interests of a worldwide citizenry Parochial interests may sometimes be a threat to the common good

And as much as it may sometimes be difficult to promote respect for the common rights of all people is something for which we should always strive for Of course there is a special place for human kindness And efforts to enhance harmonious interaction is likely to facilitate a just reward

Such idealism is the ultimate goal And while it is only realistic that some humanswill fall short of the ideals that are expressed herein, let us not be sidetracked by petty cynicism Human potential is glorious and immense Failure to recognize the innate capabilities of the common individual is a tragic mistake Efforts to improve the state of human interaction is a work in progress Patience and commitment will lift our standards, increase the development of common interests and augment the level of happiness among the human people at large
