Comments on: If Not Now…When? http://www.activemind.com/2011/06/if-not-now-when/ wonderings on liberty, learning, beauty, the past, present, future...on life Tue, 21 Jun 2011 18:28:20 -0400 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.7.9 By: Russell Kanning http://www.activemind.com/2011/06/if-not-now-when/#comment-4 Tue, 21 Jun 2011 18:28:20 +0000 http://thoughts.activemind.com/?p=39#comment-4 I agree with you. I am not the type of person that wishes he lived in a different time period.
The bad things we have now have been experienced before. The freedoms we wish we had are attainable …. with the same methods others have used in the past.
When Jesus left his followers instructions, he let them know there was hope, but that they would have trouble in the process. We have the same trouble with the same system. But we can enjoy life as we struggle against it. 🙂

When I find myself contemplating living in other times, particularly after putting down a good work of historical fiction for the night, I ask myself these questions. Yes, there were certainly other times that I would love to experience, people I would love to speak with (Socrates, Jefferson, Patrick Henry, Lincoln, Einstein, John Candy, etc.) But, when I imagine LIVING in that time, one thought always occurs to me: medicine. There were probably three different times in my life when a little pill we tend to take for granted turned a death sentence into a minor inconvenience. Good luck finding antibiotics then.

No. I agree. This is the time. From space travel, to the internet, to desktop publishing and home studios, things are far better now. (Anyone remember carbon paper and the cost of getting photos enlarged and printed?) We live in a unique period where technology and recent Socialist history combine to provide a unique opportunity to secure personal liberty. At no other time was it so difficult to buy the lie that government can solve our problems. Sure, it still gets them elected, but the facts against it are many and only seconds away online. Find a fact, pass it on to thousands instantly… like you did with this piece.
