THE PRICE OF LIBERTY

LIBERTY is the divine right of every man, and it is the prerogative of no one to do that which will either directly or indirectly interfere with or circumscribe the liberty of another. According to the Declaration of Independence, liberty is an inalienable right, bestowed upon man by his Maker. The recognition of the eternal truth expressed in this sentiment has been the inspiration of every effort looking to the liberation of humanity from the various forms and phases of evil that enslave and that seem to have power to enforce obedience.

The fact that liberty is a God-given right can profit but little if man is not in a position to exercise that right. Evil knows no law and acknowledges no right. Its sole purpose and aim is to enforce its own claim to power and reality. Mortals are oftentimes the innocent victims of evil and may unwittingly become the means by which evil is able to accomplish its purpose. So completely are they deceived at times that they are led to believe that what they say and do is in the service of God. They are blinded to the fact that injustice is done to others, and the rights of their fellow-men are trampled upon. The wrong that is done ignorantly may not make one a wilful sinner, but it is nevertheless the means of injuring others and in time it must react upon the wrong-doer, causing him to reap as he has sown.
