“If one man craves freedom—liberty—he must remember that all other men long for the same freedom. [. . .] If one man is to be absolutely free, then another must become an absolute slave. And the relative nature of freedom is true socially, economically, and politically. Freedom is the gift of civilization made possible by the enforcement of LAW.”  [UB 134:6:1]

Thought Adjuster: “Historically, freedom has always been a hot topic. Some sacrificially and bravely promoted collective human rights while others foolishly campaigned for unbridled personal liberties. The element of selfishness included in such self-centered crusades made them oblivious to the harm they inflicted unto the innocent bystanders they had no qualms about turning into their sacrificial lambs. It suffices to look around or study evolutionary turning points to acknowledge the destructive rampages prompted by Lucifer’s narcistic propaganda that cleverly misrepresented the quest for personal liberties.

History abounds in hits and misses. By drawing enlightening wisdom from unfortunate episodes, society benefits from their unwelcome backlash and is prompted to make adequate correction courses to establish a peaceful global civilization abiding by the Golden Rule of conduct disclosed and role-modeled by Jesus.

Law and order are the frameworks of divine undertakings. Civil disobedience endangers the entire cosmic organism's equilibrium—just as a virulent cell poses a substantial threat to the immune system.

After blessing them, God imparted humankind with parental recommendations: “Be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth, and subdue it. Rule the fish of the sea, the birds of the sky, and every creature that crawls on the earth." [Genesis 1:28] The Father always blesses—never curses. Because he delegated co-creative powers to immature creatures, he spelled out the spiritual parameters that would support the eventuation of his magnificent and all-encompassing vision.

Moses channeled a somewhat expanded version of the divine legal tenets by promulgating the Ten Commandments. Worded as both interdictions and admonitions, their intent was to steer human civil conduct away from spiritual jeopardies.

A postulant driver has to pass a two-part test that demonstrates his thorough knowledge of the traffic rules and his physical and mental ability to operate a motor vehicle safely. Such strict requirements were mandated because drivers share the road—driving in the same or opposite direction.  

The same goes for your life journey. It has to abide by the divine laws whose third version was publicized by Jesus under “The Universal Golden Rule of Conduct.” 

Do not claim false liberties that clash with the divinely promulgated laws. Love and respect are the nuts and bolts of this universally fair system of ethics that outlaws hate and disrespect. Act accordingly.”
