Freedom, means to be unfettered, uninhibited, uncensored and unimpeded. That is the definition of being free. We say we are free here, and know it carries a high cost in lives, money, materials. Indeed we are deeply in debt for wars held over the past decades, when will we have peace?
It has been estimated every man, woman and child figuratively owes our government a bit more than $60,000. If the government gave citizens the bailout they gave wall street every one of those same would have had 1,000,000 dollars to payout, and a very real economic pickup, including jobs, paid off debt, educations, all possibilities discarded for greed and fear the Fed would hurt us back. The Fed, private bank in control, not government at all.
The memories we edit and obscure are helped along with fake news, misquotes and deeply held fears and belief in lies without evidence. I have called this government as of Trump, Fascist. He is installing active CEO's into his cabinent, there os no more blatant evidence than this, and the denial is concerning to anyone who believes we have liberty in this country.
It vanishes little by little, and we sleep and are distracted while very important events took place out of our sight, and the press was complicit. It is hard to choose between job, and the streets, no not really.
Freedom to live the American Dream means knowing which side your bread is buttered on, tow the company line, no other. Compliance is had because employees are not entirely sure if their job is or is not on the line, it just is a possibility, job loss is not advantageous so they help the employer and vote against real self interest. That is not freedom to me.
Just as ridiculous as the idea, if you choose other than the two major groups of control you have wasted your vote.
The real wasted vote, if you had to hold your nose, you wasted the opportunity for something else, same as if you stayed home instead. There were other choices, outside the public money fueled circus. Pressure to pick one of two odious masters is no choice at all, it is leverage against a need to belong to the winning side, nothing to do with wrong nor correct leadership.
You all are free to choose, as long as you can live with the consequences. There are many that fall on the ones who make different choices...The pressure to conform, is greater than you think, and this only has helped enslave thinking, giving chameleons freedom to destroy. The cork blew as true liberty has ascerted itself in the reality of being free to be me.
FREEDOM TO BE ME.
Does anyone deny that right is utterly inherent?
The only thing stopping you is fear?
That is because of consequences, sometimes inhumane ones.
Yet, obviously of a symptomatic disease. Society plays a part, and ours has been making strides in the direction of that yeilding a long and lasting peace we all desire, but it would be a world that was not driven by the debt instrument dollar. We are debt ridden at birth to these days, an ssa number by 5, that is incomprehensible on the face of it. That makes us obligated to the system, not by choice, either.
Busyness tells us how to dress for success, what to study for it too. Making my life their choices for me, no thank you, I pass, I rather like a whole well rounded education. Those who choose a broader horizon are derided and will lead to being broke.
Really you are free to choose, just understand it carries a heavy debt load, maybe for life. Fearmongers and hate in line with corporate goals, than human ones. Strange form of Freedom you practice.
I went to Kent State under Computer Science in Business, it was a university. As such I received a well rounded Education, I minored in written communication, so all forms of writing, from technical to fiction. I was taught critical thinking skills, and bussyness mythologies. That is no wonder they wish to separate the two. I accepted the mindset was to confuse their employees and customers and chuckled through some astoundingly bad economic theory and how to game it, though not blatant, you read between the lines.
Here is a truth. Only 60 million are employed via payroll data. 47% or nearly 30 million below poverty level. Who thinks there is not a storm brewing.
Most seniors are retiring below poverty level as well.
Freedom of choice does not mean anything in the system. The only way to opt out is to not participate in the profit destroying life machine. Is that a choice to you?
Freedom of choice is indeed an inalienable right.
The mystery to me is how do you make such automatic choices, unless you are on automatic?
It is boxed in thinking that sees only two choices. Good or bad, right or wrong, red or blue.
There is no freedom in poverty, but from fear. You have to get over stigma, isolation, and possibly what defines a crime and necessity. You have to know people do not choose to cross that line as a rule.
The safety net has the effect of keeping honest people honest. But it is a trap, food with nothing else keeps people homeless and unable to change it. This is outside of the matrix.
Free to die. Is that what you chose? For others, not you.
Sorry to say, you might get true freedom yet. You are always free to choose, but not outside of your programming, until you understand the program.
