First in Freedom
Mecklenburg Declaration of Independence and the Halifax Resolves, respectively, were signed.
I have to admit that the Mecklenburg Declaration of Independence and the Halifax Resolves were not the first things that popped into my mind when I saw “First in Freedom.” What I thought of was the gerrymandering by the North Carolina General Assembly and the various laws it has passed recently to make it harder for people (especially people would don’t look like the white folks in the North Carolina General Assembly) to vote or to use the most logical public restroom.
North Carolina may have been first in freedom chronologically, but it is at the back of the pack when it comes to actually delivering freedom to its citizens. Apparently, the irony was lost of the state’s legislators. Now, North Carolina should have a “First in Discrimination” license plate. Or a new General Assembly.

Burke and many writers answer in the negative. Freedom is no license. Freedom doesn't mean permission to do what one likes because a person can do what he likes and still not be free. guarantorReplyDelete
