Self-Gainful Personal Liberty with Social Responsibility
This blog provides the author a means through which to document and present his personal liberty social theory. The author’s theory is partially based in historical Social Contract theories of the 17th and 18th Centuries. However, the author independently asserts his own newly developed precepts, proceeding beyond classical theories. Using additional 19th, 20th, and 21st Century more recent historical experiences of mankind’s governmental and commercial cultures provides more examples from which to learn, and adds contemporary practical issues to consider and make timely.
The author asserts his unique and very specific theory precepts and interpretations while not pretending to analyze based strictly on others’ historical theories, and instead admits responsibility for his own opinions, and also admits to the lesser degree of credibility and weight his own precepts should carry with them, in keeping with the situation that has his personal theory standing as new, untested and undebated, as of the year 2020.
This blog also includes far more than just theory developments and the ethics and practical realities behind them. Additional material covers cases which inspired the author to action, often prompting him to write essays of opinion analyses, for his submission to staffs of government and commercial officials, in efforts to sway lawmakers and other leaders to take eventual action on problem areas. The author considers such activism to be his volunteer civic responsibility from a solely personal interpretation of his continuing Oath of Office duties while in retired military officer status.
These case studies are presented as opinion analyses of contemporary orgainzational policy systems, lawmaking decisions, and legal procedures. Some cases are applauded as well done, and some cases are identified as problem areas, to the author’s opinions. If the author believes specific policy systems, lawmaking decisions, or legal procedures to stand as present dangers to the human rights of United States citizens, then he explains the nature of what he considers to have strayed from United States constitutional goals.
