Words Poorly Used #10 — Emancipate, Liberate, Free

No one can emancipate, liberate, or free another man.  People are inherently free or they are not.  To enslave a living being is to deny them their obvious purpose.  It is to interfere illegitimately with their living.  People should seek to live together in a semblance of harmony, but there is no man empowered to compel them to do so.  It is a natural test that humankind will either develop the skills to co-exist or they will fail.  The existence of one person who believes that he can liberate another is the absolute enslavement of all persons.
