The Way of the Spirit

DESCRIPTION: The thirteenth of fifteen pages on Values (one of the Field Nodes comprising the subject tree of The Telson Spur), this page is the first of three comprising a list of links to on-line resources related to issues of private security (including freedom of expression and access, censorship and free speech, copyright and intellectual property, public access and private security, hackers and hacktivism, and noise, i.e., net abuse, junk mail, and spam). The coordinate pages, with a common header and List of Contents, contain links to resources related to the development of human rights and responsibilities (including civil rights, disability resources, ideology and political belief, and social justice), women's resources, and to resources in law and public security (including law and justice, crime and criminal justice, corporate crime and accountability, civil peace and security, global peace and security, international law, global trade policy and economic security, space policy and security, and intelligence and security).

KEYWORDS: value; ethics; morality; authority; law; rights; justice; security; freedom; access; censorship; censorware; free speech; copyright; intellectual property; open access; plagiarism

What is necessary is an unflagging respect for the world as we find it and for dissent and diversity.... Above all, there must be a concern for perpetuating those institutions that protect freedom of human choice....

Herman Kahn & Anthony J. Wiener

Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.
Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article 19 (UN General Assembly, 1948)

We are not forced to choose between reason and faith in the conventional sense -- we may choose between more or less reasonable faiths. The ideal of rationality in turn requires the ideal of freedom, the right to be an individual. A rational person is not merely one who has good habits or right principles, but one who knows what he believes and assumes the intellectual and moral responsibilities of his beliefs; and first he must be free to think for himself, make up his own mind. Although non-rational behavior may exhibit admirable qualities, such as the loyalty, fortitude, and daring found in barbarians, or even in the animal world, these qualities are not wholly admirable, or trustworthy, unless they are conscious, responsible choices. The only possible virtue in being a civilized man instead of a barbarian, an ignoramus, or a moron is in being a free, responsible individual with a mind of one's own.
Herbert J. Muller
