Rebel With a Cause

An Ice Breaker card reads: Would you rather go to jail on a point of principle? Why?

In order to answer this card, I imagine a state in the Philippines where total annihilation of freedom of expression is implemented. If ever right to liberty no longer exists and I happen to fight for that principle and consequentially I go to jail for that, then maybe, yes, I would allow myself to be thrown to jail on a point of principle.

I believe in liberty. I believe in freedom of expression. And if I have to be thrown to jail because I exercise my right to express myself, then maybe I’ll take the risk.
