Related Words, Beliefs, Background for Choice #23

self test A on the above           self test B on the above    


I wish for all law-abiding people: “life, liberty”, equality before the law, legal recourse when rights or privacy are violated, presumption of innocence until proven guilty, and the right to appeal conviction. I’d outlaw discrimination (by race, sex, color, nationality, language, sexual orientation), arbitrary arrest, torture, imprisonment due to poverty, inhuman treatment and enslavement.    I’d grant freedom— of movement, speech and creative expression (exempting what is hateful or hurtful to society), assembly, religion, to fair compensation for work, and to choose a marriage partner.

It’s abhorrent, but like others, my life is severely constrained. The cause of this powerless condition may be quite different: extreme poverty, massive debt, harsh environmental conditions, ignorance, prejudice against us, disability, the authority or greed of some dominating individual who exploits us, kidnapping, dogmatic beliefs, imprisonment, restrictions of authoritarian government, etc.  (Note: none choose this for themselves; an enabling many—perhaps including you?— indirectly choose it for others; an enslaving few directly choose it for others. )
