Does Freedom Ultimately Destroy?

It’s obvious that many simply can not handle their own freedom.  You see this when they use it to harm others and even themselves with ill thought out or destructive actions.

There are many sayings regarding mortal man’s stupidity of nature.  “Give him enough rope and he’ll hang himself.”  “She’s a danger to herself and others.”  “Talk sense to a fool and he calls you foolish.”  “Two things are infinite: the universe and man’s stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.”

I’m sure of one thing, egomaniacs cannot control themselves.  The minute you give them any attention or encouragement, they go completely berserk.  Just like tiny tots trying to show off and beg for attention, that eventually realize they are not the center of the universe, many of the exhibitionists on social media ride the high of adoration until something shakes them back to earth.  Usually an online bully or troll is more than happy to oblige in the task of “reality checking” them.  Not that their critiques are accurate.

Freedom is great if you know what to do with it.  You were never supposed to be using it to cause harm to others, hence the fact we have always been a nation of laws.  No one that abuses their freedoms should be allowed to have them.  This includes those that use their freedom with power to give themselves more freedom and power than the rest of us so that they are guaranteed no one can ever stop them.  We all need to have our limitations.
