Hi! I’m Bob Carkhuff. On behalf of my associates, I would like to welcome you to freedomblog.com. Our mission is to empower thinking people.
Freedomblog is a place where we are going to present all of the issues of our time regarding freedom and the various forms of control being imposed upon us today.
We are going to present these issues in written, audio, and video form. They will include position papers, interviews, live interactions, and books.
We will begin with a definition of freedom as “unfettered thinking.” Unfettered means the absence of constraint. Thinking is a process that enables us to generate new and more productive responses for any situation. The Freedom Paradigm is very simple:
THINKING POSSIBILITIES FREEDOM
Thinking generates possibilities that provide the foundation of all freedoms. If we cannot generate new possibilities in any predicament, we cannot be free!
For example, can we generate economic rather than political or military solutions to many of our crises. Does it make sense to simply build walls or erect fences between conflicting populations like the United States and Mexico or Israel and Palestine? What about “Enterprise Zones” that attract the more productive and entrepreneurial people from both populations? Like the partner of every so-called “mixed marriage” will tell you, when you bring two cultures together, you create a new and more possibilistic culture. Is that not the story of America?!
We can be empowered to generate new possibilities in every area of our lives. Indeed, that is the only way to be free!
Think about it! Thinking is freedom!
