Pursuit for Freedom And Happiness

Pursuit for Freedom And Happiness

By: JBS  Share  Life

The early American definition of freedom, often voiced by the founding fathers, was the restriction of personal action. The founders believed that there are three rights: freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, and freedom from state interference.

These three rights are linked: one should be free to pursue one’s own will, one should not offend anyone and one should not interfere in one’s private life and personal affairs. Freedom, of course, does not depend only on life, but the pursuit of happiness depends on freedom. [Sources: 1]

This includes the right to live one’s life as he or she wishes, without affecting other people’s lives and the pursuit of happiness. How does the government protect and secure the rights to life, freedom and the pursuit of happiness? What can the state do to promote freedom and help us seek happiness, which is an inalienable right? [Sources: 1, 3]

In the last few years I have found that I have matured what it means to live a purpose – a life determined by a particular goal. I am mature enough to say what I want to do, whether it means being a carpenter, plumber or doctor or not working at all, and how I want to live as long as I am on earth. Since freedom is the right of the state to do what we consider to be best for ourselves, it can be argued that we have a right not to interfere with other people’s lives and the pursuit of happiness and happiness of others. [Sources: 3, 7]

Remember that we must all make decisions, which often consist of satisfying our interests and those of others, and not of seeking our own happiness. [Sources: 7]

In order to be autonomous, it is free to pursue knowledge and ideas, to express these ideas and to discuss them with others. If innovation is the basis for human prosperity, it must be accompanied by wisdom and prosperity. However, if people are denied the freedom to innovate, they risk losing the wisdom, prosperity and freedom of thought that goes with innovation. [Sources: 2, 7]

Let us resolve this by clearly stating that the freedom to seek happiness and the freedom to invent innovation are in fact exactly the same right. In other words, if you are not free to innovate, you cannot be free from the pursuit of happiness. The freedom to try to tinker, to learn and to know is the right of every human being, not only of the individual, but of all human beings, to seek happiness as he sees fit to pursue it. [Sources: 2]

One of the reasons I love America and what makes our heritage worth protecting is the freedom we have as Americans, whether because we love it or not. [Sources: 5]

We take for granted these truths: that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, that these include life, freedom and the pursuit of happiness. Above all, it is up to the people to decide for themselves what constitutes a happy life and to have the freedom to strive for it. [Sources: 4, 5, 6]

In particular, it is time to recognize that the freedom to seek happiness is a fundamental right, along with many other corresponding rights, including the right to innovation and the right to earn a living. As the world moves toward a world with more freedom, more prosperity, and more happiness, the need for freedom to seek happiness increases. [Sources: 2]

But here’s the problem: the pursuit of happiness remains as difficult as ever, and we have forgotten it. Just because we have the freedom to realize does not mean that we are always good at it or that it is always a good persecution. There are those who are passionate about happiness and will make every effort to get it, but that never means that we are chasing happiness itself. [Sources: 0]
