We have the freedom to destroy ourselves as much as we have the freedom to choose the best opportunity; listen in to Jessica Dewell talk with Scott Scowcroft and Jeff Sherman.
Its when we don’t like something, it’s easy to blame (which removes our freedom) and be stuck. There are relationships between freedom and power and freedom and choice and that even though we make our choices, we are not alone. Influence is the ripple of our actions and there is a dark and light side of each action we choose.
