“… with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, “
- Whose life?
- Whose liberty?
- Whose pursuit of happiness?
- Whose happiness are we all pursuing?
Our fucking own.
- Not your mother’s.
- Not your father’s.
- Not your girlfriend’s.
- Not your family’s.
- Not that of your “group”.
- Not that of your “race”.
- Not that of your school’s.
- Not that of your siblings.
- Not that of your friend’s.
- Not that of your political party.
- Not that of your entire mother fucking country.
You are pursuing, and have a right to pursue, your own happiness.
All rights are of the individual. All rights are absolute.
You do not “kinda sorta maybe” have this right or that right.
Your rights, are not contextual. Your rights are not a matter of opinion — majority, minority, mob, judge, legislature, or otherwise.
6.5 billion people could declare tomorrow you don’t have a right to your life and liberty.
This would not change the fact that you have a right to your life and liberty.
Remember this when scum bag politicians that deserve to burn in hell — if there was such a place — incrementally and subtly chip away at your rights, as they did your parents, and their parents, and their parents before them.
Remember this when they chip away at the little protection your rights have left, and the rights of your friends, of your family’s, and of those you love.
Remember that “good by force” is the hallmark of the destruction of everything you value in the world. Everything you’ve ever heard, seen, touched, felt, experienced, and created.
