I’ve been writing about things that matter to me and some of the lessons I have learned as an observant citizen of the world. Foremost among those principles is freedom. A belief in the righteousness of freedom has to be accompanied by a belief in the potential of humans to self-regulate and to use their liberty to create healthy communities.
Many people have lost faith in their fellow human, and this cynical attitude is opening the door for controlling influences who believe society needs to be better ordered. This concerns me quite a bit.
In order to challenge this troublesome trend, now is the time for people to take responsibility for their own lives and communities through citizen action. Be an optimistic force for personal responsibility and model your optimism for your neighbors to see. Be a free spirit for truth, common sense, optimism, and community renewal.
