Ever heard the expression? "Let’s float it." I’m predicting it floats right on by without so much as a ripple.
Who needs freedom when you’ve got "security," "safety," "order," and [perceived] "guarantees?" Those are all so much more seemingly valuable, right up to the very moment when you suddenly realize your freedom is gone.
What’s more valuable, roaming the plains freely, or absolute protection from preying tigers and lions? Why, protection, of course. Isn’t it obvious? It is, indeed; but only up to the point where you find that your absolute protection consists of you being caged, not the tigers and lions.
And so it goes.
