What does being myself mean? It means being guided only by my own conscience, sense and judgment; not being afraid to speak my own mind, ideas and opinions; not being afraid to be different and unconventional. It means accepting myself as a serious person, taking serious things seriously, expecting other people to take me seriously. It means not being intimidated and cowed by the scorners, mockers and irreverent of our society, but standing unashamedly for what is serious, sacred and right. It means speaking out against what is immoral or wrong even though I may be laughed at and labeled old fashioned. It means esteem for myself; esteem for the values, attitudes and principles that I have built my life upon. The less seriously I take the immoral and irreverent the freer I am. The more disdain I have for them and their ideas the freer I am. The more lightly I treat them the freer I am. What most angers and upsets me in this society? What must I take a stand against? - the presumptuous, brazen and open flaunting of sex and immorality everywhere (TV, magazines, general conversation) - the presumptuous, open flaunting of obscenity, profanity and indecency in our society - the open flaunting of the Swinger and Playboy philosophies and attitudes - the open flaunting of the Irreverent Feb 1978 More from SolitaryRoad.com:
