  The 14th Dalai Lama’s Acceptance Speech, on the occasion of the award of the Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo, December 10, 1989.

A universal call for disarmament
I am very happy to be here with you today to receive the Nobel Prize for Peace. I feel honored, humbled and deeply moved that you should give this important prize to a simple monk from Tibet. I am no one special. But, I believe the prize is a recognition of the true values of altruism, love, compassion and nonviolence which I try to practice, in accordance with the teachings of the Buddha and the great sages of India and Tibet.  I accept it as a tribute to the man who founded the modern tradition of nonviolent action for change – Mahatma Gandhi – whose life taught and inspired me. And, of course, I accept it on behalf of the six million Tibetan people, my brave countrymen and women inside Tibet, who have suffered and continue to suffer so much. They confront a calculated and systematic strategy aimed at the destruction of their national and cultural identities. The prize reaffirms our conviction that with truth, courage and determination as our weapons, Tibet will be liberated. I speak to inform you of the sad situation in my country today and of the aspirations of my people, because in our struggle for freedom, truth is the only weapon we possess. War today would be a form of suicide.

Republicanism has been a major part of American civic thought NOT. Turn of the Screw. 2017?

alextocquevillestrangertocqueville5valuesAlexis de Tocqueville warned about the “tyranny of the majority” in a democracy. Republicanism is the guiding political philosophy of the United States. It has been a major part of American civic thought since its founding. It stresses liberty and inalienable individual rights as central values, making people sovereign as a whole, rejects monarchy, aristocracy and inherited political power, expects citizens to be independent in their performance of civic duties, and vilifies corruption.[2] American republicanism was founded and first practiced by the Founding Fathers in the 18th century. For them, according to one team of historians, “republicanism represented more than a particular form of government. It was a way of life, a core ideology, an uncompromising commitment to liberty, and a total rejection of aristocracy.”[3]  Republicanism formed the basis for the American Revolution, the Declaration of Independence (1776), the Constitution (1787), the Bill of Rights, as well as the Gettysburg Address (1863).

Republicanism is a type of democracy, but if protected by a Bill of Rights, may be distinguished from other forms of democracy as a Bill of Rights asserts that each individual has inalienable rights that cannot be voted away by a majority of voters, unless the other type of democracies are also protected by a Bill of Rights.[6] , and suggested the courts should try to reverse the efforts of the majority of terminating the rights of an unpopular minority.  “Republicanism is derived from the”republic”, but the two words have different meanings. A “republic” is a form of government without a hereditary ruling class while “republicanism” refers to the values of the citizens in a republic.

A Law of Value. Juridical speech. Speech as elected opinion.

A moderated law of value must rest upon two defining principles, 1. Value as elected opinion 2. Law as freed labor. We are called to share value by obeying democratic lawful governance. When nations are unprepared to fulfill these responsibilities they are nothing but common thieves and criminals.  By agitation and resistance, it is incumbent upon EVERY individual to demand that these constraints be removed from the private and public sphere. Failure to do so will bring danger and destitution to our world. In order to live freely one must be prepared to die for freedom. Whether freedom is metaphysical or existential is one’s own business.  However, nations will be required to embrace freedom’s cost as a way out from under fiefdoms.  Fascists prosper when individualists ignore their duties as law-abiding people. They wait for criminal authorities to uphold law.  Sadly, laws can work when people are willing to stand up for them. Unwillingness to do so is very very expensive.  When speech is juridical a vigorous and ongoing defense of opinion should provide justice. This fight is moral and must begin and conclude with making life worthwhile of laws of value.  Through practice of opinionated speech it might be possible to discard evil thinking. Only then rule of law is value fit to become enshrined within human beings.

The perils and promises of Orthodoxy. Aristocratic freedom as described by Alexis De Tocqueville, 18th century theorist not.

The schism between Orthodoxy and Heterodoxy

Heterodoxy is often associated as a means of dividing human beings and beliefs. Orthodoxy counters this by legislation and morality. Belief in Orthodoxy can be part of what De Tocqueville comments on as “Aristocratic Freedom.”  This freedom works when applied to the interests of the privileged to establish an increasing legitimate morality.
