The freedom of speech, personal freedom, what is more important? Freedom is a difficult subject to discuss in the time of a pandemic and lockdown when some of the freedom you had before is not available.
Spoiler alert, let's just say that in the end, the conclusion is that freedom is not a subject that can be discussed in just one episode. However, there are still plenty of reasons to listen to this episode where Andrew talks about the freedom to walk in the ice-cold rain to go to the park with his dog. Or the moment Roger mentions the Auschwitz shirts that the Capitol rioters wore.
Andrew; "Freedom comes with a responsibility, you are free to choose to get vaccinated against Covid, you are free to do what you like, it is your body, but when you start to curtail other people's freedom to do what they want to with their body, through disinformation or coercion, that's where I take issue."
Roger; "About being looked down, having your freedom being taken away from you because that's how far they go, and you go like, well, no, it's not entirely true. I mean, it's not really fair to put it that way because, and I'm okay with having the discussion that's fine. But the problem with it is that when that is your reasoning, then your mindset will go to I'm a prisoner."
As per usual the episodes of Take this Personally are full of controversial, philosophical thoughts of two guys with a boatload of life experience looking at the world and raising their point of view.
