Peace, Liberty, and Civility

Do not be mistaken by some that claim to desire peace, for often times their ‘peace’ is at the expense of liberty.

For instance, if everyone was locked in a padded cell, there would be extreme peace. The issue is not merely desiring peace but instead the balance between civility and liberty.

Civility is a defining characteristic of secure minds. Insecure minds, such as minds that do not ever bow to a more correctly reasoned argument, are rarely civil.

When one is unafraid of being shown wrong, civility is easy.
