The notion of freedom proclaimed by the modern world is anti-discipline. But true freedom cannot be separated from discipline.
Is freedom really eating all the cheez puffs you want?
Sometimes it seems like that’s what our culture is saying. That no one (and nothing) has the authority to tell you what to do in any regard, even when the thing is dangerous or unhealthy for you in the long run.
I saw this all the time in the classroom, too, and I think it will play a big role in how future generations adapt to the workplace and to “real life.”
There’s always a trade-off, though. And as Dr. Drew always says, “there are no free lunches in nature.” Freedom means you have the choice to do what you want, not to escape the consequences of doing whatever you want.
And the only real freedom you can achieve, that is, the ability and opportunity to do anything you put your mind to, can only happen through discipline. Agree/disagree?
