The Value of Freedom

March 31, 2011 § Leave a comment

“War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.”
~John Stuart Mill (1806 – 1873)

 

Clearly those true and impressive words are lost on this person:

To this man (and I use that the term “man” loosely) all blood shed to protect and defend the freedoms we enjoy (and often take for granted) in America has no value. His freedom itself, according to his sign, has no value. The life he lives in America, has no value.

He has no respect for the lives lost to ensue others, including himself, can enjoy a life free from oppression.

As far as I’m concerned, his existence has no value.

More Useless idiots here. SH is covering the protests here.

Update: As stewie in comments points out, peace has no value without freedom. Ask anyone living in a totalitarian country.
