S/R Benjamin Franklin Post

Ben Franklin describes how liberty is more important than temporary safety.
Franklin claimed that those who give up their essential liberties to gain a little safety do not deserve to have either. A college student in Texas named Andrea Hernandez was expelled for refusing to wear a locator tag while on campus. Hernandez explained her skepticism. In an interview with InfoWars, Hernandez said that, "I feel it's the implementation of the Mark of the Beast*. It's also an invasion of my privacy and my other rights.". Hernandez claimed that the locator tag infringed on her personal rights. The locator tag represented a bigger issue that she did not want to support. She did not want to support the idea of a force controlling where people are and knowing where they are.
