Freedom

We are often mislead by our nations claim of freedom. We live and are garuanteed to die so we are already bound by absolution, and yet in order to live , well survive, we have to work, we have to generate income. Money for food, money for clothes money for school. Other wise we would be bums. Shunned by the community or arrested for loitering. But if we were truly free we could live and actually fully enjoy our lives without the constant need to work a 40 hour week for minimum wage. Is my time not worth more then 5.15 an hour? I’m sure my family would surely think so. And this claim to freedom. Hah, if I was a free man I would be able to spend every waking moment with my children because that is what I truly desire. Is that not Freedom? The choice to do what you want? And could I spend every waking moment with my kids? Yes. But would I survive? The answer is no.We are prisoners of money and greed . Forced to live under the confines of a “free nation”, like robots in a factory 8 hours a day out of my life for the rest of my life and I have no real choice. How long do we live? On average, what, 75 years and if I worked 250 days out of each year then that would mean that I only had 8626 days without work with my family. That is depressing. I’m am not free. I am bound by the system to conform and become a productive member of society. Keep the wheels turning for the next man’s burden. While families everywhere suffer from poverty and crime. And others get wealthy off the sweat of a working man.
