Letter to the editor: It’s not really freedom when it infringes on the freedoms of others

Max I. Miller
Breckenridge

In America we have the freedom to:

  • Not get a vaccine so we can infect others with a deadly disease that has killed over 5 million people
  • Buy a military-style weapon and kill many innocent people as fast as we can pull the trigger
  • Make a woman keep her pregnancy, even if it’s caused by a brutal rape or incest, because she can’t afford to choose for herself
  • Ignore global warming that creates catastrophic weather and serious climate calamities
  • Pollute oceans with plastic that threatens the lives of aquatic animals and plants
  • Burden future generations with huge amounts of public debt, approaching $100,000 per person, that will cripple their future (is it any wonder why babies cry so much?)
  • Fill the airwaves with vicious propaganda, false and deceptive information

Freedom is not really freedom when it infringes on the freedoms of others.
