In this October 9, 2023 article for Students for Liberty, Russell Coates explores the idea that freedom should take precedence over safety. Coates makes the case that freedom should be prioritized even when it comes at the expense of safety. He argues that excessive focus on safety can lead to authoritarianism and the erosion of individual liberties.
The article emphasizes that freedom is essential for human flourishing, innovation, and the protection of individual rights. It suggests that while safety is important, it should not be pursued at the cost of sacrificing fundamental freedoms.
Editor’s Note: This article is important especially in our world today, where modern humans are being forced to choose between safety comfort, and freedom. We once gave up our freedoms in the hopes of safety (during the COVID pandemic). We hope that this article will convince you that freedom should always take precedence, if we want to be able to live a good life.
We encourage our readers to read the full article, so that you may understand why we continue to fight for freedom when the conditions of our society make it so much “easier” to be silent and apathetic.
