Welcome to today's #WednesdayWisdom from Way Of The Renaissance Man Starring Jim Woods
Today's insight was inspired by Scottish Enlightenment philosopher, economist, historian and essayist, David Hume.
“It is seldom that liberty of any kind is lost all at once.”
The brilliant David Hume knew that to preserve liberty, you have to recognize that it tends to decay slowly in societies that forget to hold it up as a core principle. Remember that the next time a new law or rule is imposed restricting your actions, and/or one that taps into your wallet.
