A Most Precious Freedom

The Most Precious Freedom

The most precious freedom of all is the freedom that comes from participating in comprehensive public efforts to genuinely look after others; the freedom to enjoy widespread up-regulated expressions of the human capacity for kindness–in oneself and in the larger society, both of which are dependent on each other. This freedom is generated by social arrangements and social activities that radiate with Social Beauty; this freedom is denied by capitalism. Most people, whether they are aware of it or not, are desperately yearning for this freedom. They seek it, but cannot find it, because the current economic model, and the culture that model creates, do not provide this most precious freedom and hide the path towards it.
