Part 2. In Praise of Liberty

Liber = free man

Back in the old school Greek or Roman times, the dichotomy was simple:

You were either a slave or a free man [liber].

The ancient Greeks or Romans weren’t “racist”

Back then, the ancient Greeks and Romans weren’t “racist”. No — they simply saw themselves as the apex culture and people, and everyone else was a barbarian.

But the interesting thing:

In the ancient Roman Empire, it didn’t really matter which area you lived in– as long as you paid taxes and your dues and had Roman citizenship, you were just ‘Roman’.

For example, the Roman in Spain had the same rights as the Roman in Rome. Seneca was Roman; but lived in Spain. He wasn’t a “Spanish-Roman”; he was just Roman. Even our friend Nietzsche — he was technically a ‘pole’ (Polish descent), but he was just ‘German’ in the normal sense.

So what are we to think about liber in modern times?

  1. Start your own website-blog (bluehost.com and wordpress.org). Speak your mind freely, and share your mind freely.
  2. Don’t self-censor yourself
  3. Raw authenticity is the goal.

Be brave, and speak freely,
