Quote of the day—Simone Weil

Liberty, taking the word in its concrete sense, consists in the ability to choose.

Simone Weil
[There was once a time, not so long ago, where people could not choose marriage partners where the skin color didn’t match. In most state people still can’t marry if the genders do match. This is not liberty.

The government in many states forbids the use of noise suppressors on firearms but requires their use on cars. This is not liberty either.—Joe]
