Social progress requires individual freedom to choose. Social progress is reversed or destroyed by government, collective, consensus or media action to suppress individual choice. Tyranny requires suppression of the individual’s right to choose. None are more hopelessly enslaved by tyranny than those who believe government, media, consensus or community can provide dignity or honor. Dignity and honor are characteristics of individuals who are honest with themselves first and then honest with those around them, and they choose on that basis, regardless the collective, consensus, government or media pressure around them. No other person or institution can bestow dignity or honor. The country is beyond the point of peaceful return when the majority believes they are choosing social justice. Punished for flying one symbol but celebrated for flying another, you have been conquered by division. What did you expect? That is what community organizers do. “Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! — I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!” ~ Patrick Henry, 1775.
