    Is freedom more important than safety?

    Discuss.

    Really depends on the situation.
    No.​

    A society without freedom is never safe. We have thousands of examples of that.

    Depends what kind of person you are, but I generally lead towards safety.

    Depends on the circumstances. There are examples advocating for both being more important than the others

    Can be spun both ways. I prefer not generalizing but looking at the different aspects of safety and freedom and then determine which outweighs the other depending on the aspect

    Too broad of a question.

    I must say i am baffled by the fact that someone would date Tifa, or that someone like Tifa is able to put a dude in a friendzone. Like are you really so depleted on the good looking girls? In my country no one would ever even look at her twice. We have 2/1 (Girl/Boy) ratio, and most of the girls are decent looking or hot. We have obese girls but they mostly die alone because even the ugly looking dudes can find a good looking girl if they are just not poor as fuck..

    Dammit I deleted that so I could be saved from your rebuttal.

    I regret ever giving you the opportunity to be more right about anything.

    What truth? The fact that you're an annoying dimwit? Most of your posts are cringe. Nothing worse than a cocky asshole who gets proven wrong and lies to save face. The fact that you have a gold bar pretty much exemplifies that rep is worthless. You are the face of awful modern day TMF posters. SpiRo back into whatever cave you crawled out of, please.

    this was pretty much the thesis with which i graduated highschool

    it's quite the eternal social ideology conflict, since apparently they're almost antithetical concepts.

    it was supposed to be a fair overview, but i not subtly pushed the idea that safety-centered regimes (so heavily controlled from above) did not exclude the possibility of having an happier population
