Human Life vs Human Freedom

Post#1 » Mon Oct 05, 2015 11:01 pm

Gun to your head, you have to chose one or the other, and your decision will guide humanity for countless generations to come, which is paramount, human life or human freedom?

Some context. Another mass shooting has brought gun control to the fore. Gun control is just one front in the culture wars. And as far as I can tell, the culture wars boil down to a conflict between life and freedom. Because you can't guarantee human life without sacrificing freedom and you can't guarantee human freedom without sacrificing lives.

Why do you need a gun to be free?

I believe owning a gun is a natural right, universal and inalienable. To take that right away would be to infringe on my freedom.

Check this out if you're interested.
