“Man’s greatest endowment in mortal life is the power of choice—the divine gift of free agency. No true character was ever developed without a sense of soul freedom. If a man feels circumscribed, harassed, or enslaved by something or somebody, he is shackled. This is one fundamental reason why totalitarianism is so diabolically wrong, and some day in the future must be defeated. God intends man to be free ” (David O. McKay, Gospel Ideals, p. 299).
