Free Speech But Watch What You Say

September 21, 2009

We have freedom of speech, but we are wise to “watch what we say.” I find that ironic.

What “I AM” in the eyes of the world has as much to do with what I censor and suppress as it does with positive qualities and traits which I freely, spontaneously exhibit.

If what I say is true of myself, then how magnified is that truth with regard to figures in the public eye such as politicians, religious leaders, scholars, etc.? How much of reality is shadows on the walls of Plato’s cave?

As Paul Davies wrote in “God And The New Physics”:(paraphrased, emphasis mine) “IF we are “saved” but only that which is good in us is preserved, then in what sense are ‘WE’ saved in the sense of our total persona?”
