We are all slaves, and not just "figuratively".
Yeah, I know "This is a free country", and "I can choose whatever I please".
Blah, blah, blah.
Give up your job tomorrow.
You don't want to?
NONE of us can.
Even if we CHOSE to give up our jobs and live on the streets, THAT'S illegal.
It's illegal to panhandle, it's illegal to "loiter", it's illegal to pitch a tent anywhere.
You are born into slavery without your ever knowing it.
Sure, "free" slavery HAS it's perks. Afterall, who doesn't enjoy going out to a nice dinner and drinks afterward, but in order to enjoy that once-in-a-while treat, and with the ever elusive carrot-on-a-string of being "this close" to being able to do more than that, we have sold our lives and souls to the machine.
