The complexities of freedom
Freedom is a strong word with a powerful meaning.Sometimes people say you don’t know what you have until its gone.This can relate to freedom because we sometimes don’t know the liberties we have until there gone and we don’t have them no more.Freedom isn’t just a action word of being able to do something with your own free will or making your own choice’s.Freedom is also a state of mind.Freedom is a structure of conscience of keeping your mind free.Free from doubt or free from worry.Our freedom enable’s us to live our daily live’s without wondering about our safety,shelter or our general well being.Freedom is known to having the ability of acting or changing without constraints or possessing the power and resources enabling or allowing a person to fullfill a purpose.There are eight different types of freedom.There is freedom of association,freedom of belief,freedom of speech,freedom to choose one’s state in life,freedom of religion or belief,and freedom from bondage and slavery.Now that I named the eight types of freedom im going to discuss the four basic type’s of freedom which is frredom of speech,freedom of worship or belief freedom from want and freedom from fear.Freedom of speech is the most important type of freedom.You can voice your opinion or thoughts on how you feel or what you might think about different things in the world or around you.Freedom of speech enable’s us to speak freely without the fear of punishment or consequences.Next is freedom of worship.This type of freedom is important because it allows you to worship or express reverence or adoration to a dietary that is representing a function or form of morality and belief.Thrue this it may give people hope and belief in something that is morethen what is or what seem’s to be.Freedom from want is the third most important,because when you want something it can control you thrue the action’s of getting what it is that you want or desire.Our mind is in a perplexual state of conscience,freedom from want is not being tied down by outside influences,or the state of want from within.A example of this is,let’s say you want a car your always going to feel that weight over you or let’s say that you are suffering from a addiction you are going to want what it is that you are addicted to this can be drugs,alcohol or whatever you are addicted to.This can leave you with a want that you are addicted to.And it is a right and a freedom to be free from want.Freedom from fear is the fourth most important freedom but not the least in measureability,Because when you fear something your mind isn’t free it is tangled in opposition.Freedom from fear is the right that you do not have to live with a cloud of doubt or worry,.Freedom from fear is the right that gives people the right not to worry rather it be the fear of the government ,political officials,law officers or people that live in the town or city that you stay in.This freedom was first introduced by President Roosevelt in 1941 along with the other three basic freedom’s.Now that I named the eight type’s of freedom and went over the four basic but important type’s of freedom.I want to talk about the two element’s of freedom which is positive and negative freedom.Positive and negative freedom was first stated by a philosopher and historian named Isaih Berlin in a lecture.He stated that positive freedom is the will to act in society’s context with guidline’s setting limitation’s with power and resource’s.This means that you can have the power and resources to do what you want as long as you don’t break the law.Negative freedom is acting without external restraints.This means that a person can have the power and resource’s to do what they want but can abuse the power and resource’s without outside force’s putting a limitation on their action’s.You can see a lot of negative freedom from law enforcement officer’s politician’s and even political leader’s,who sometime’s will act with negative freedom because they don’t have external restaints or limitations that can hold them accountable for their action’s.Freedom is not something you tax or have to pay for.Freedom is a natural right given to everyone granted you haven’t broke the law and is sitting in jail or prison.In some area’s or different country’s the government is more strict.When the government is lead by a official who dictate’s freedom on their own accord or belief they become a tyrant and can often abuse thiere power as ruler and oppress people.That is why freedom and rights are important.

Stirring Things Up
I feel odd writing about this when I have grown up knowing a certain amount of privilege. I'm white, grew up middle class, went to a good school, had plenty of opportunities.
Нет войне/Stand with Ukraine
Нет войне the chant of the people of Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Russia. The afternoon was filled with pain, cries, anger and a bond that requires no language to comprehend. I joined to Stand with Ukraine. I listened to stories of a woman who threw a jar of jam at a government drone flying by. I saw the sunflowers planting themselves firmly into the ground. It was a beautiful sight of people allowed to protest this war crime; protest the lies of one man who has too much power for too long.
The Great Modernizers: Gabriel Boric and Volodymyr Zelensky
Volodymyr Zelensky is a Centrist Libertarian and Gabriel Boric is a Libertarian Socialist, with emphasis on the Socialist. Just from that alone, you wouldn't imagine there are many similarities between the two politicians. But there is one big similarity, they both break from the respective norms of their countries. So let's get a good look at these two men, what they stand for, who they represent, and most importantly the historical significance of both men.
What If the Government Ran a Fast-Food Restaurant?
Everyone keeps telling me that the government should be run more like a business. It should be profitable, efficient, and customer driven.
Why do we need Political correctness ?
When I passed my philosophy exam half a decade ago, the essay question to answer was: “Is freedom threatened by equality?”. A daunting question for an 18-year-old, and one I never expected to henceforth regularly encounter, regardless of phrasing. In hindsight, the fact that it has should come as no surprise — this question has animated political discourse, in various forms, since the 1790s. The fight over political correctness is just its most recent iteration.

It seems there is a virus spreading in Western Democracies and this one may be more scary than the one we have come to know over the last two years.
Why It’s So Hard For White People To Talk About Racism
I. Introduction It’s no longer enough for white people to simply say they’re not racist, we have to be actively anti-racist. That’s the aspect of this that many white people overlook in their rush to be defensive about how they are not racist. Maybe you aren’t, but it’s time to confront racism in America. A problem that has been baked into the foundation of the country.
Noam Chomsky on Writing
“Come at me, bro!” ― Noam Chomsky Someone left this falsely attributed quote on Goodreads — I’m still laughing. I got an email from Noam Chomsky once — it felt like getting a post-it note from God.
Politics is NOT a Dirty Word
"Politics is NOT a Dirty Word." Wiser folk than I have said that we should appreciate politicians and political compromise more. And from experience and study, I find that I agree.
