Hong Kong – freedom

I broke the no words rule this week. It’s the first time ever.

Discipline & Freedom

I was intrigued by this PragerU video because my high school’s motto was “Responsible Freedom.” The idea was that in order to be free, you must be responsible or you’ll lose your freedom. Also, if you don’t have responsibility you aren’t really free.

This video doesn’t really touch on that idea till the end when he talks about ownership. The message here is good even for us who don’t enter the military.

On Liberty

Here’s a short video I made introducing the ideas of John Stuart Mill culled from his work “On Liberty.” Mill was a big champion of free speech.

I think more people should read this book. You can get it for free here.

Civility at Work

I admire how this young Hong Kong protestor calls attention to the two men who are apparently spies and have been following him. He does it with respect and civility showing how the Chinese government operates and the risk those who want democracy face in the “One Country/Two Systems” era.

I pray nothing bad happens to this man.
