Osan's rule of thumb #674b:
There are no paradoxes.
When I was a physics major, I wondered about all the paradoxes that arose in the quantum "world" these geniuses had concocted. It finally dawned on me that there are no paradoxes because the world exists, thereby implying with great force that mutually exclusive (paradoxical) conditions cannot by definition exist in contradiction to each other. Therefore, it is the "standard" model of reality that is flawed and not reality.
And so it is with freedom. Freedom is ALWAYS right and NEVER wrong. Therefore, when you encounter a result that displeases you, the fault lies in the fundament assumptions and all that follows therefrom that have lead to your desire to reject that result, which in turn leads you into the strong temptation to limit freedom in order to avoid such results. The fault NEVER lies with freedom itself.
