Choice. Freedom. Rights. What are they all for?

Think about the way we speak about “choice,” as if choice in itself is the highest good. What good is choice, if the choices you make lead to evil and suffering? What good is any freedom, if you never make an effort to use it in service of the good? What’s it all for?

One of the most disheartening maladies plaguing 21st-century America, both left and right, is that people no longer feel the need to think about why we do things. We think only about whether or not we have the right to do something, and forget to ever ask ourselves why.
