Gentlemen, we live in the free world.
@fredhanna, if you aren't careful, I'll start quoting Jean-Paul Sartre at you.
Point taken. Thank you. Apparently, some folks right here on Snuffhouse live in a world where they can start an organization that includes some and excludes others. And others, like myself, think it's great.Of course, when viewed in terms of metaphysics, a strong case can be made to show that freedom is an illusion, myth, or pipe dream. On the other hand, many of us enjoy a good degree of liberty (as opposed to freedom) in the political sense under certain governments, while many of us under other governments have very little liberty. And then again, some people under a particular government may have more liberty while others (for example, minorities) under the same government have almost no liberty.But freedom itself may not exist at all. In that sense, to be sure, there would be no such thing as a free world. I can see I need a few more bumps of snuff so that I can stop writing this drivel. 8-}
