A story from the annals of history. A General in the Middle East long ago had an interesting way to end a mans life that was sentenced for execution. He would bring the accursed in his office and offer him two choices, the firing squad, or the "Black Door". Each man would ponder the alternatives weighing the known death against the unknown death and would then chose the firing squad. On an occasion a visitor came to his office and asked about the black door and was told the above story. The visitor then asked what was behind the "Black Door" to which the General said "Freedom" but he had known only a few men brave enough to chose it.
