What is modern freedom?

*

It is the freedom to doubt the reality of what has been regarded as Good, then to doubt the possibility of Good, then to subvert/ invert/ destroy/ (I mean reform) the Good in the name of the Better.

(There is nothing actually Good - not God, nor marriage, nor the family - but somehow there always is something Better than them.)

*

Unconstrained freedom to attack the Good is now regarded as the most important of all Human Rights.

Yet since the Good is Reality - this means that the ultimate modern freedom, defended with the full force of the modern state and mass media, is the Right to deny Reality.

A short term for the denial of reality is Psychoticism.

*

Thus modern freedom is a freedom to be psychotic; and an unconditional right to have this delusional state defended by all necessary means.
