Freedom & Liberty

   In America three words standout in difference between each other, “Freedom”, “Liberty” and “rights”. This is no small matter as they apply to every individual that makes up our society. The more people having differing views of these words the more we disenfranchise each others place in our society.
   “RIGHTS”; Are prerequisite to our birth as humans and no authority created by man in this world, has the “RIGHT” to diminish or enhance them as they apply only to individuals, not! groups in society.
   “FREEDOM”; Equates as to its opposite “slavery”, where others assume the civil power do dictate every aspect of you individual life in society and you have no say in the matter other than your human right to rebel against them, you may lose, or you may gain your freedom but the question remains at what cost to you, asserting your right to rebel.
Mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed---declaration of independence

   LIBERTY”; is the civil authority allowing unencumbered exercise of individual freedom within the confines of society. Example; when the emancipation of slaves in America took place it gave freedom to the slaves but didn’t mandate it’s co-partner “liberty” and when we finally did enforce liberty it was called group civil rights which is not compatible with our Constitutional system of government which is founded on liberty of individuals not groups!
   Our failure to educate our own people as to the supremacy of our Constitution and the men, who so painstakingly crafted it, was and still is the only thing that has the capacity to destroy our way of life which will set all mankind on a collision course with the past failures of man.  GAP      

 "Without wishing to damp the ardor of curiosity or influence the freedom of inquiry, I will hazard a prediction that, after the most industrious and impartial researchers, the longest liver of you all will find no principles, institutions or systems of education more fit in general to be transmitted to your posterity than those you have received from your ancestors." --John Adams, letter to the young men of the Philadelphia, 7 May 1798
