Ideographs and shriveled grapes

T: “We’ll make more money if we throw out the king. But how do we sell it? We must argue for the freedom of the people to choose their own government.”

T+175: “Government is inefficient, wasteful, and easily co-opted by our enemies. It’s obvious. But how do we sell it? We all believe that people have the freedom to choose their own government; let’s say that people should also have freedom from government.”

T+240: “No one should ever disapprove of my life choices. But how do I sell it? We all believe that people have freedom from government; let’s say that people should also have freedom from being shamed. (As long as they like my life choices; if they don’t, they’re shaming and infringing my freedom.)”
