A Few Words About Freedom

Discontent is the first step in the progress of a man or nation, or so said Oscar Wilde, and it applies so poignantly to our situation today.

 

pulsing brain gearTen years after the fall of State Controlled Economics (State Controlled Everything Else still exists, everywhere), the walls within our minds still stand strong, blinding us to the freedoms which we really have, and really always had.

Ah, but those who misread, who can't see freedom for what it is, wonder what freedom really means; instant credit? Ah, more freedom is on its way. Just sign here on the dotted line.

Many people are wondering out loud, taking wagers even, on the chances of our entry to the EU; the odds are against it; not geographically; not historically; but culturally and soulfully. For freedom doesn't mean free.

Freedom is very costly, for it means awareness of one's actions, of the results and the consequences; it means responsibility. It doesn't mean f*ck over everybody else, or 'me first', it doesn't mean cultivate friendships until you can spend them, it means you are now free to be the best you that you can be.
