Your Choice

No matter the authority, accepting that authority is your choice. It's a binary (yes-or-no matter) drawn from a context of thinking in your head — you as an individual. Don't put it on an outside force. Don't tell me you are just listening to others or the voice of God. Don't deny that big part of you that is choice. It is true that people have been influenced by the time and place in history into which they have been born, but also they were born with the power to choose — the power that allows them to avoid bumping into walls and to walk through doors.
