I’m not posting this quote to defend the over-subsidization of housing. I merely point out that hanging out in bars, drinking to excess, cheating on your spouse, and/or acting as if you are “free” is only more evidence that you are enslaved by your desires – not liberated by your autonomy.
Of all modern notions, the worst is this: that domesticity is dull. Inside the home, they say, is dead decorum and routine; outside is adventure and variety. But the truth is that the home is the only place of liberty, the only spot on earth where a man can alter arrangements suddenly, make an experiment or indulge in a whim. The home is not the one tame place in a world of adventure; it is the one wild place in a world of rules and set tasks.
I’m going to stop blogging and have a glass of wine with my wife.
