“In the U.S., the First Amendment certainly protects your right to speak. But there’s no absolute protection from the effects of what you say — particularly when those words may put a specific person in fear of injury or death.”
— Gene Policinski, senior fellow for the First Amendment at the Freedom Forum, and president and chief operating officer of the Freedom Forum Institute
“Humankind’s combined achievements are forming a global network of collective mind, a new intersubjectivity.
The noosphere is a new stage for the renewal of life and not a radical break with biological life. If there is no connection between oogenesis and biogenesis, according to Teilhard de Chardin, then the process of evolution has halted and (wo)man is an absurd and ‘erratic object in a disjointed world.’
Judith Hanson Lasater:
‘When we open to life, we are helping people we will never meet.
We make decisions every day, and they have an effect on the world. When we are present and make choices from this state of mind, the effect of what we choose creates ever-widening ripples that will help beings we may never meet. Be present as we make decisions.’
And the words we speak. The messages we share. Yes, we are given the right of free speech in this country, how are we using it? Ethical, moral speech…to do no harm.
