Freedom of expression

And sense of responsibility

October 11th 2014
For citizens of democratic countries, the right to express themselves freely is certainly an essential development. But how far can we exercise this right? Does the title of thinker or artist that certain people have given themselves give them the right to sow discord around them? They think it is legitimate to expose even their most improper thoughts, feelings and needs, without concern for the effects it might have on those who are weaker and more easily influenced. Well, no, all those who have an influence in society with what they say, write or create need to be warned. They are lucky to be free, but freedom is not an end in itself, and it is their duty to reflect on the effect their creations will produce on others. Even if they are innocent in the eyes of human justice, divine justice condemns them very severely. Each person must use their gifts to enlighten others, to awaken love, faith and hope in them and the desire to improve. If they are not aware of their responsibilities, not only will they be punished, but in a future incarnation they will be deprived of these gifts.
