Apt words

"There are two freedoms; The false, where man is free to do what he likes; The true, where man is free to do what he ought."
A quote from Charles Kingsley, 19th century British writer, clergyman, and teacher. I pulled his historical novel Hereward the Wake from a discarded book pile, and still have it somewhere, but have managed to never read The Water-Babies, which is his best-known work.
When I came across this quote, it seemed to be so apt for the people in Blood Clay - and when we look at what's going on in this country and elsewhere, it seems to be a universal sentiment "devoutly to be wished."
