Do You Have 64 Words for Freedom?

Aung San Suu Kyi made the mistake of being patriotic: she formed a political party to bring freedom to Myanmar, and won the election. Myanmar's military not only refused to recognize the election, they placed her under house arrest. Myanmar is a Chinese satellite state and, thanks to the ruling junta's efforts, a miserable place to live. Do you have a minute to give her 64 words of support?

You can do it in just one word, "freedom." It's funny how we need to redefine things these days or explain them. I'll tell you what freedom isn't!

Freedom is not having the government running bankruptcy precedings, firing CEO's, choosing their own ownsership, choosing the union ownership, and then deciding how little to give to the debt holders whose contracts put them at the first of the line.

A government that breaks the law certainly does not govern over a free society.
