NEWS*HERALD Ita W* in ST;. , 7«8.7«21 Panama City, Florida A Florida Freedom Newspaper This newspaper is dedicated to furnishing information to our readers so that they can better promote and preserve their own freedom and encourage others to see its blessings. Only when man is free to control himself and all he produces, can he develop to his utmost capabilities. We believe that freedom is a gift from God and not a political grant from government. Freedom is neither license nor anarchy. It is self control. No more. No less. It must bo coniietont with the truths expressed in such great moral guides as the Coveting Commandment, the Golden Rule and the Declaration of Independence. When Evil Is Called Good One of the greatest tragedies to befall the human race occurs when people look upon evil and call it "good." A former colleague made that remark years ago, and it has been constant food for thought as we have endeavored to find a way to express the meaning of those words. The problem, of course, is to define "evil" and "good." We have concluded that one of the major factors in finding the definitions is the "time frame." Many human actions once considered "good" by apparent consensus are now recognized as evil without difficulty. For example when the Roman legions were conquering most of the known societies of the world and were bringing slaves home to do the labor, the superior civilization that was Rome hailed the accomplishment as "good." We suspect few people in today 's world would now consider enslavement of people through military conquest as "good," The acceptance of military conquest required a bit more sublety in salesmanship as man became more enlightened. In order for war to be "good" there had to be a "holy cause," such as the Crusades by which the armies of the Christian world sought to reclaim the Holy Land from the Sarcens. In many parts of the world, that seemed like a "good" idea at the time. "Goodness" also is a point of view at a point in time. Hitler managed to sell the German people the idea that the military conquest of their neighbors was "good" because it represented a way out of their economic woes. Even the murder of millions of Jews must have been accepted as "good" by some of the German people of the time, they having been sold on the superiority of their own kind. Military activity for the most part has had to be sold to the American people as a use of force only for defensive purposes. "We were attacked first," is the general thrust of this approacli. More recently we were going to the defense of helpless people in far away lands and were at war to contain the spread of communism. The most recently expression along these lines came from President Nixon who defended his action in the bombing of Cambodia while deceiving the American people at the time. It was done, he explained, to shorten the war and save lives. We do not challenge the validity of his point of view when the action is examined "within that time frame." But the same defense can be made for all the other actions we have discussed above. Actions of distant history, once looked upon as "good" have come lo be held in disrepute. We trust our readers will recognize that the consistent thread of our commentary here deals with acts of political government at the various times and places. The fact that "evil" was looked upon and called "good" should suggest the transitory value of political government if one is seeking the path to eternal peace and goodness. What then does one search for if he is persuaded that political leaders mark the trail chiefly with compromise and expediency? Well, why not try the approach of individual liberty? Individual understanding and respect for the rights, life and property of every other individual would tend to turn one away from the force of political government. With such understanding and respect, one could not participate in the enslavement of a fellow human being; he could not and would not turn on the gas of the execution ovens; he could not and would not participate in the confiscation of another's property and he could not and would not look upon the evil of those who do such things and call it "good." Certainly it is a long journey, but as the Chinese said, "a journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step." DA. LAWRENCE E. LAMB TWO PACKS A DAY He quits 'the enemy' 9y Lawrince E. Lamb, M.O. sure it was rough for a cou- Dear Dr. Umb - Nine P'e of weeks but there was an ^eirs ago when I was 55 I had exhuberant fun along \yith it ' ••• It was a feeling of victory. I did have a mind. I did have the power to simply laugh at sriioking the well known two packi of cigarettes for 35 yean, not that there had been any enjoyment of it during the . lait 10 or IS years, Just habit — and the seeming impossibil> ity of quitting. No amount of tapering off. no amount of trying to cut down, no drug store aids had any real effect. No advice by doctors or friends enabled me to stop the habit. Then one night when I went to bed my leg went numb, and even though I sat up and had a shot of whiskey. I had trouble restoring the circulation to my leg. While all of this was going on, I thought about an <ic- ijuainiance who had smoked and drank up a storm and was told by his doctors to auit smoking or "off comes that leg." He didn't quit and off came the leg. Then the doctors told him quit or pretty soon off comes the other leg. Well, he did quit smoking. •Ibiii with breathing, eating indTl My conclusion was Tlvinc. simple, damn it man, you are killing yourself. And for what, something you don't even enjoy or want. Then I transferred my outrage to a mythical someone else who was trying to Mil me, What do you mean t cin't quit? The hell I can't. I Just did. the very thought of giving in. It was cumulative. Food tasted better than I had remembered for years. The throat irritation steadily diminished, the sputum I coughed up paled from a dirty brown to piearly white and gradually decreased. If you reallv want to stop. Just get good and stinlting mad at the person who is literally killing you. Take it as a personal challenge and see what happens. Dear Reader— Thanks for sharing your experience. I agree with you that if. psychologically, you are able to direct your hosUlity toward cigarettes and consider them as an outside enemy, that it could help you kick the habit. Individuals devise different ways of helping them to quit and i ^our history is one way Dear Reader— Hyper" means increased — the hyperactive child is an overactive child. The ending 'emia" refers to blood (anemia means without blood which isn't strictly correct, even for people with this problem). The syllable "gly" comes from glucose or glycogen meaning a type of sugar. Thus, the word hyperglycemia means an increased amount of sugar in the blood. "Lipid" means fat or fat­ like, thus hyperlipidemia means increased amounts of fatty substances in the blood. Part of the problem of understanding medicine is the vocabulary. The language barrier sometimes makes it difficult for patients to understand their doctors. Stnd your quettions lo Of. Lamb, in core of this newspaptr, P.O.
