The New Face of Freedom

By Laki Skouras

The people have sacrificed Freedom and willingly gave back the tyrants’ rule over every aspect of their lives that the Founders of this country had sacrificed theirs to release themselves from.

Our Liberty has been arrested, as a sailor or Marine awaits the time he is granted Liberty by the Admiralty that rules over him. Isolated from the world, not knowing when the bell of Liberty will toll, we sit and wait. If and when we are granted Liberty we’ll have to don a mask that shields us from vital oxygen and a fundamental human interaction – facial expressions...

THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE

That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

Leopold Von Sacher-Masoch: The Father Of Masochism, Explained

Human sexuality is a vastly complicated subject. While taboo to talk about in polite society, sex is the reason we're all here today!

You've likely heard of (or maybe even explored) S&M, but have you ever wondered what it means?
