      Shakespeare's Debtor

      Isn't the next panel the one where the wife dumps a pitcher of ice water. . . . ?

      Jim Baxter

      Each individual human being possesses a unique, highly developed, and
      sensitive perception of variety. Thus aware, man is endowed with a natural
      capability for enacting internal mental and external physical selectivity.
      Quantitative and qualitative choice-making thus lends itself as the superior
      basis of an active intelligence.

      Human is earth's Choicemaker. His title describes his definitive and
      typifying characteristic. Recall that his other features are but vehicles of
      experience intent on the development of perceptive awareness and the
      following acts of decision and choice. Note that the products of man cannot
      define him for they are the fruit of the discerning choicemaking process and
      include the cognition of self, the utility of experience, the development of
      value measuring systems and language, and the acculturation of

      The arts and the sciences of man, as with his habits, customs, and
      traditions, are the creative harvest of his perceptive and selective powers.
      Creativity, the creative process, is a choice-making process. His articles,
      constructs, and commodities, however marvelous to behold, deserve neither
      awe nor idolatry, for man, not his contrivance, is earth's own highest
      expression of the creative process.

      Human is earth's Choicemaker. The sublime and significant act of choosing
      is, itself, the Archimedean fulcrum upon which man levers and redirects the
      forces of cause and effect to an elected level of quality and diversity.
      Further, it orients him toward a natural environmental opportunity, freedom,
      and bestows earth's title, The Choicemaker, on his singular and plural brow.

      Human is earth's Choicemaker. Psalm 25:12 He is by nature and nature's God a
      creature of Choice - and of Criteria. Psalm 119:30,173 His unique and
      definitive characteristic is, and of Right ought to be, the natural
      foundation of his environments, institutions, and respectful relations to
      his fellow-man. Thus, he is oriented to a Freedom whose roots are in the
      Order of the universe. selah

      That human institution which is structured on the principle, "...all men are
      endowed by their Creator with...Liberty...," is a system with its roots in
      the natural Order of the universe. The opponents of such a system are
      necessarily engaged in a losing contest with nature and nature's God.
      Biblical principles are still today the foundation under Western
      Civilization and the American way of life. To the advent of a new season we
      commend the present generation and the "multitudes in the valley of

      The message is this: Trust Freedom. Remember, tyrants never learn. The
      restriction of Freedom is the limitation of human choice, and choice is the
      fulcrum-point of the creative process in human affairs. As earth's
      choicemaker, it is our human identity on nature's beautiful blue planet and
      the natural premise of man's free institutions, environments, and respectful
      relations with one another. Made in the image of our Creator, free men
      choose, create, and progress - or die.

      Free men should not fear the moon-god-crowd oppressor nor choose any of his
      ways. Recall with a confident Job and a victorious David, "Know ye not you
      are in league with the stones of the field?"

      Let us proclaim it. Behold!
