  2. i think we all have a small amount of freedom. as long as there are boundaries, laws, rules or restrictions you have a limited degree of freedom. Freedom in my opinion will happen when our spirit/soul departs the body.

  3. That's why I prefer to use the word "liberty" instead of freedom. It's more accurate when it comes to human affairs. For some people, true freedom would be self-destructive anyway.

  5. @Pioneer1I beg to differ with your take on the crime wave in Chicago . The suggestion that the figures of the rampant shootings and killings could be elevated by the addition of regular black folks defending themselves from criminals and gang members is a stretch. The children, the women, the drivers of hijacked cars, the road rage targets, the mugged pedestrians, are all innocent unarmed victims of gun-toting black and brown felons and gang bangers. Characterizing respectable citizens as "vigilantes" and blaming them for contributing to the skyrocketing crime rate is disingenuous. The only retaliation shootings going on are between gang rivals. And the implication that the media is treating the criminals unfairly by ignoring white-on-white crime is a tired lame rationale. The fact of the matter is that these daily drive-bys and robberies are not occurring in the city's white residential neighborhoods. Plus what white people do to each other shouldn't be a priority of black folks. It's not as if 2 wrongs make a right. And the only mental illness most of these thugs are afflicted with are anti-social disorders which are the side effects and end result of poor parenting. BTW, is there another media besides the much maligned "mainstream" media? What is the alternative news source? The daily interviews of black community and religious leaders and grieving families that are regularly broadcast on Chicago's local TV give a very accurate picture of how fed up and frustrated ordinary law abiding blacks are. They don't want to hear excuses from apologists. or complaints about government neglect, inasmuch as the cops they villainize are an arm of the government. They just want the violence to end and for those responsible for it to be captured and punished. They've even started to scoff at the black lives matter slogan.
