I'd rather have dangerous liberty than safe slavery

No one should be foolish. No one needs to be reckless.  We do however have a choice.  We can be slaves to:
  • Fear
  • Anger
  • Resentment
  • Terror
  • Denial
  • Timidity
  • Conspiracies
  • Victim-hood
The devil is in the bondage business and if he can get you to submit to his plans.. he will.

On the other hand Liberty is dangerous.
We can walk into a burning building, we are free to do so.  Sometimes that means we should.  Sometimes we must.  Firemen do.

There is a caution that is needed, but walking in liberty must be dangerous only for you.  If you cause danger for others because of your liberty that is not liberty.. that is foolishness.

I will get in trouble here, but if you are carrying a virus for which as present there is no cure and you gather for any reason, family, religious or social you are endangering others.  Your liberty might kill grandma, yours or someone else's.

It is important to be very wise in these times.  "Your Liberty To Swing Your Fist Ends Just Where My Nose Begins". Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
