Is everything in moderation something you live by?
I don’t because it doesn’t apply to every avenue of life. Here’s a short explanation of what I mean. “Everything in moderation” isn’t universally axiomatic. For example, we shouldn’t want murder in moderation, or stealing in moderation, or making false accusations in moderation.
Drinking in moderation…yes…or shopping in moderation…certainly. But true, inalienable rights come from the Creator…otherwise they’re just policies…subject to subjectivism and/or the whims of a so-called “organic” government document.
Every person has the right to life, liberty (self-protection), and the pursuit of happiness. We can nullify our rights by violating the rights of others. But no person has the right to take those rights from an innocent person…no matter how big or small.
And instead of focusing on “everything in moderation”…fill yourself to overflowing with whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report and have virtue and are praiseworthy. Meditate on that and get back to me…
