Author of The Crucible, Arthur Miller writes, “It is still impossible for man to organize his social life without repressions, and the balance has yet to be struck between order and freedom.” I do agree with Arthur Miller in this sense. As an imperfect species, I don't see humans ever being able to maintain a healthy balance in society between order and freedom, or perhaps my place in evolution is making it seem that way.
Another example of order being dominant over freedom in America is several cases where citizens have been told to get rid of vegetable gardens in their front lawns. Big corporations would love for everybody to rely on them for their poor quality food products, so when "radicals" promote ways around this, of course the "order" needs to be kept, so something is done to stop the radical ways of being. There will always be people in charge of the order in society, and they are going to be selfish. Hopefully a new system will be thought up one day, but until then, the people must stand up for themselves like we have all witnessed in recent days past.
