Values Test Results for Feb 2012 and discussion of Value #1

From time to time I like to go to http://www.douglaswagoner.com/ValueTest.php and build a list of values that are important to me.

Now all I have to figure out is how I should act upon these values/feelings/emotions…!

Here are the results of today’s values test ranked by importance:

1. Liberty (16 votes)
2. Privacy (13 votes)
3. Imagination (12 votes)
4. Serenity (11 votes)
5. Self-reliance (11 votes)
6. Sexuality (10 votes)
7. Financial independence (10 votes)
8. Realism (9 votes)
9. Craftiness (7 votes)
10. Prosperity (7 votes)
11. Vitality (6 votes)
12. Perseverance (6 votes)
13. Frugality (6 votes)
14. Comfort (5 votes)
15. Economy (4 votes)
16. Honor (2 votes)
17. Making a difference (1 votes)

So, maybe I can try to address some of these over the next few days, and maybe I can set some goals to accomplish those goals or act upon those values.

Let me address #1 – Liberty, right now:

I choose to live my life according to my own free will. I don’t care what other people think and do, as long as their actions and choices do not infringe on my own life, liberty and pursuit of happiness (LLPH)!

The United States Constitution protects my right to LLPH, but does not grant it. No one can grant one the right to LLPH, it is given to you at conception by the love of your parents, and reaffirmed by the pains of your mother throughout maternity, and the efforts of your parent(s) to raise you to become a responsible human being.

Some people think that god, the almighty creator, or whatever they believe in, gives you that right, but that is just a bunch of crap. You are born with the right – it’s greedy, spineless humans that try to take this right from you with laws, religion, or any other such contrivance(s).

So the right, the freedom, the liberty to choose to do whatever you feel like without infringing on someone else’s right to the same is what I am after.

The biggest thing I hate is when people feel the need to convince me of something. If I am interested in a subject, that is fine and I will be glad to discuss it with you, but don’t tell me what to eat, how much exercise to get, what to believe, or not to believe – I’m fully capable of making my own decisions, and research myself any subject I’m interested in.

So, basically, leave me be and all is good 🙂
