Journal Profane MuthaFucka's Journal: More about Freedom 15

Continued questions:

Can free people exist in totalitarian states?

If a person exists in a way such that their desires and goals never contradict the totalitarian state, can that person be said to be free?

Or is freedom a collective attribute? Is there no such thing as a free person, only free nations?

  • Bless you for trying, but honestly: We're fucked. Hard. And I'm saying that as someone who's got a pretty good doomstead going and has the money and resources to weather the coming storm better than 99.9% of the population. Zogger's more useful than you, ffs.

    Also, it's friday. Nobody likes a teacher who assigns homework for the weekend.
    • Well then, why the fuck did you post then?

      These queries are purely selfish. I'm not teaching. In fact, if you notice, I'm not giving anything back here.

      And I'm not going to either.

  • do I look like I am in jail?

    Well, MuthaFucka? Yeah, I'm talkin to you.

    • What do you mean? I'm just asking what people think.

      Two distinct ideas, which one do you agree with?

      • Hey, yeah, you, Hey MuthaFucka, I do not see two distinct ideas.

        I do see four questions.

        Yes. Yes. Question with unwarranted assumptions, answer not available. Does not compute, bad question at line 4.

  • ...the word freedom means something different depending upon context. And virtually all politicians claim to be in favor of it but usually use it largely as a "positivity" word, in the same way as a left-leaning European politician would have used the word "socialist" prior to the 1990s, or even how a right-leaning politician would use the word "christian" in the US today.

They don't feel they have the freedom to recieve medical care, because the are opressed by the tyrrany of the majority (the ones with insurance, who don't care about how much it costs to have a 'roid burned off). On the flip side, some of those
