Safety is an Illusion, Dreamt Up by Rulers

Safety not only isn’t worth sacrificing liberty, it isn’t worth anything at all. Safety doesn’t exist, you see; it’s an illusion dreamt up by those who use it as a pretext for infringing on the freedom of others. Life isn’t safe. It’s downright deadly, in fact. No one gets out alive. A life well lived isn’t safe, it’s dangerous and full of risk. Stop trying to be safe. Go be free instead. At least you’ll actually get to live before you die.
