Limits to Freedom
What I’ve learned from Covid-19 and Climate Change
Freedom currently seems to be the foremost value or “right” in the Global North. In the name of freedom, we are literally putting people to graves by methods of Guns, Germs, and Steel. To maximize our freedom, we took down protective masks, let everybody mingle in the middle of a respiratory epidemic(s), we drop bombs on brown people, and emitted billions of tons of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere — all for the individual freedom or rather the illusion of it.
