I am a free man; a sovereign man. I rule myself. I rule no one else. It is for me to choose the path of my life. If I am to choose my path, I must accept responsibility for my choices. I will let others choose their paths. We may interact in our chosen paths, but such interaction must be voluntary. No force must be used. We can join each other as partners. We can create communities. We are social animals. It is good we should meet. Anything is possible, where force is refused. I will continue my path. It is the natural way. All humans are born free. We are not slaves. To rule another is to create a slave.
You may have more power than me, I say to those who would attempt to rule me, but I am free because I have decided to be free. You may punish my body, yet my mind and my soul are mine. You can never rule them.
