Michael, great parable.
Portia, I've got one quibble, the use of "another." I'd opt for different instead of another. Different conveys singularity and nonrelation, whereas another conveys addition and relation.
To the RPer, I know my quibbles get on the nerves of some of you. I don't make them to irk you or engage in superior-inferior discussions. Merely I want my detailing to hone intellect. The person who comprehends freedom has got to articulate himself better than the person behaving against freedom articulates himself. For me the DP is the source for education about freedom and has bettered me intellectually.
Through mastering language, you'll gain freedom for yourself and create it or increase it in whomever you are in contact with, provided that person is naive rather than subversive. The more often you act freely, including dileneating it, the better freedom will breathe in your community. The better it breathes in each of our communities, naturally freedom will emerge in what our communites comprise, the whole that is our country, the United States.
To the degree freedom spreads is the degree you have constructed defense for yourself, an indirect to direct relationship.
School's fine. Just don't let it get in the way of thinking. -Me
Study nature, not books. -Walton Forest Dutton, MD, in his 1916 book whose subject is origin (therefore what all healing methods involve and count on), simple and powerful.
