What is Liberty? According to Oxford Dictionary, “The state of being free within society from oppressive restrictions imposed by authority on one’s way of life, behavior, or political views.”
Liberal and Conservative are fancy parlor words tossed around by unintellectual children in an attempt to impress the adults around them. Most of those using these words have no idea of the real meaning. According to Oxford Dictionary, the definitions for enlightening the grown children that might be reading.
Liberal– Willing to respect or accept behavior or opinions different from one’s own; open to new ideas
Conservative– Averse to change or innovation and holding traditional values
Please stop saying that you are a Liberal Democrat, knowing full well that you are not.
Wonder if there are other fancy words? Ah,yes. Progressive, Socialist. My personal favourites, Nazi and Fascism. The last two are linked together.
Progressive- Favouring change or innovation
Socialist- Person favouring the philosophy of Socialism.
Socialism- A political and economic theory of social organization which advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole (substitute government for the last four words).
Nazi- A member of the National Socialist German Workers’ Party. Also, A person who seeks to impose their views on others in a very autocratic or inflexible way.
Fascism- An authoritarian and nationalistic right-wing system of government and social organization.
One may wonder why this is titled Verum Libertatum. The reason being that in a free society the language itself is able to be dissected and scrutinized. In a free society, one has the ability to speak on any topic no matter how offensive it might be. The problem in our modern society is Political Correctness. The mere phrase is offensive when it is dissected and scrutinized.
Political- Relating to the government or public affairs of a country
Correctness- The quality or state of being free from error, Conformity to accepted social standards
Conformity- Similarity in form or type; agreement in character
Political Correctness- The avoidance of forms of expression or action that are perceived to exclude, marginalize, or insult groups of people who are socially disadvantaged or discriminated against.
When looking at it with a rational mind, Political Correctness is nothing more than social control to ensure that everyone fits the same agenda. Yet, if you think otherwise you will be marginalized and ostracized from the group. Now that is the definition of discrimination in itself.
Discrimination- The unjust or prejudicial treatment of different categories of people
