Freedom as the greatest of Good

Most men, specially those with college education in the Philippines, never rise above to view things as objects of desire - hence their shallow-mindedness. But to see things purely as objects for critical analysis, indeed, for deeper understanding, is to rise to freedom. No doubt, freedom is the greatest of good; for without freedom, especially freedom of the mind and heart, the growth and the beauty of one's personality becomes impossible. Life and knowledge are today so complex, that only by free discussion can we pick our way through errors and prejudices to that total perspective which is the truth. Let men, let even theologians and politicians, teachers and professors differ and debate. Out of such diversity of opinions will come an intelligent relativity of belief which will not readily fly to arms; hatred and war come largely from fixed ideas or dogmatic faith. Freedom of thought and speech would go like cleansing drought through the brain of the "modern mind."Poch Suzara Twitter# Facebook# Google#
