why it's important to challenge stereotypes placed upon your generation.

below are your sketches.

keep thinking about intellectual freedom and all that it is an intricate, vast be comfortable with the idea that it will most likely take time to really reel in exactly what we want to convey with this mural. time is beauty, though, in the creative process.

let's meet again next sunday. August 5th. I will send out an email to confirm. once we get everyone set up with blogger, it will be our main communication tool, and as Kelly said below, we will post a "paint" schedule.

Hey All!

Just wanted to drop by and say that I'm signed up to post here. You met tonight. I see my job as keeping a timeline and posting news about the mural. You all can do the rest!

Angel tells me that you'll be meeting on Tuesdays and Sundays to work. I'll post the exact dates and times once I know more.

In the meantime, if you'd like to see how the blog thing works with the mural, visit the Freedom Mural blog.

Is intellectual freedom worth firghting for?

Freedom is something that all people deserve as a birthright. Freedom is something that should come freely. Fighting for freedom seems slightly ironic to me because no one should have to fight for something every living thing deserves. Freedom is worth fighting for because it is your right to have freedom and I would rather have nothing left but freedom than be controlled on any level with everything (freedom aside).
Free will is something that comes along with having freedom. Being deprived of any freedom is wrong. Being deprived of the freedom of intellectuality is not an exception. Choosing what to read and when to read it should be up to each individual. Books and any other form of written informant should not be censored out by other people with their own personal biases. Just because someone disagrees with something written doesn't give them the right to prevent others from reading that material and forming their own opinions. The right of free will is being able to choose what you put into your mind (written or otherwise). Freedom should enable those decisions, made with free will, to be made by the individual they affect.
