What would you do with my answer? Would that change anything? The choice is yours. I choose freedom.

I feel this subject has been taken too lightly.

Flippancy has brought me to my limits.

PLEASE, either discuss the issue I postulate, with civility, or be silent.

I remain,

EB

ah...reasoning from a meme.
You have your reward.
If it is not the reward you seek, then you need to pay more attention.

I can not clear up your confusion.

We don't need to fly anywhere to get away from, they them those.
We don't know how gravity works.
we don't know how our eyes can see.
we don't know how the sun works.
Hubris abounds.

You want to have, rights, you must create.
We have infinite value, but we must pay attention to use it.
We must know who we are.
We are already Free.

Peace
Doug

Freedom is the effect. Are you the cause?

There's no contradiction here. Any pirate may acquire a ship and call themselves a captain. That right exists for all pirates. Owning a ship provides the opportunity to employ a crew, and to expel trespassers, but doesn't grant the right to crimp a crew into service, which no pirate possesses. Every member of that crew possesses the same right to acquire a ship and call themselves a captain, and to employ a crew, and to expel trespassers. Because it's their ship. Maybe they don't personally possess a ship at that moment, but they possess the same rights to acquire one, or to seize the opportunity whatever possessions they have acquired affords. So, every pirate has the right to acquire possessions and use them as they see fit. And no pirate has the right to seize the possessions of others and use them against their will. The difference in acceptable behavior aboard a ship is a function of the individual's relationship to the ship, not a difference of rights.

You may as well say individuals don't have equal rights because the one who acquires a burrito has the right to consume it, while the one who doesn't acquire a burrito doesn't. The point is everyone has the right to acquire a burrito, they just don't get to enjoy the benefits of that right until they actually do.
