I heartily agree even though there are those whose 'best convictions' I absolutely disagree with. The greatest disservice is to 'know' the right thing to do and NOT do it.

Mike, Norwalk

Even in this blog, there are those that I whole heartedly and fundamentally disagree with but, I would much rather discourse with them that are open with simple loyalty to their best convictions than the hypocritical politicians and others that are running this government out of the moral sunlight.

Key word in the quote is "best".

Robert, St. Emilion, France

...though, integrity is absolute! You are complicit if you see evil and do nothing... America is committing war crimes as we speak and yet most do nothing....

jim k, Austin

Robert, France, please name a few of Americas war crimes.

" The Present Crisis" When Liberty is due ! and denied, there rises a strife inside. This brought about by blind greed ! Never hasty, but always to come, a whirlwind of discontent among those that know not. The hooting mob of yesterday in silent awe returns. O slave to the wheel of labor, what to him are Plato and the swing of Pleiades ? Plundered, profaned and disinherited, a proletariat unknowingly, while the pain rises inside. Is this the thing the Lord God made and gave to have dominion over sea and land ; To trace the stars and search the heavens for power ; To feel the passion of Eternity ? Down all the caverns to their last gulf there is no shape more terrible than this. Good men and Women must rise with the coming day, the night is far spent, and the shadows will flee away. This protest we engage in is also prophecy. O masters, lords and rulers in all lands, How will the present reckon with this man ? With those who shaped him to the thing he is- This dumb terror rises to judge the world, after a long time silent.
A little of the, right education, always makes the conversation easier. The pouring forth of morality does come, when kingdoms and kings hold back ! One must give back the upward looking and the light. Thanks be to God, for his Natural laws do dictate that that he has purposed in grace. God has a Controversy with the nations ! Strife rises within the heart though it be ignorant, Gods laws of nature at work !
Homologoumenos, with out controversy, a deep conviction of facts in like mindedness of Liberty. to declare openly we speak out freely, this confession is the effect of deep convictions of Fact. This is parenthetical, distinct Truth. Sabr Saad al Melik.

In a police state aren't most individual's "best" conviction to make you a convict?
