I do agree with the Melonman. There are many ways of enslavement, but we don't need to go that far to find our lack of freedom (in a broad sense of the word, understanding that freedom is the state of being unrestrained). And often we don't need even that society to tie our rights down and break our freedom, it's enough to count on certain fears within our head and stop doing things when the only obstacle is yourself. That's the basic cell of the enslavement process. There are many restriction forms, and the collective ones (that is, the enslavement of a social layer, for instance) are just an evidence of the singularity of an apparently gregarious society which often is not that gregarious at all. To become a real homogenized community it is precise to think the same way: thinking globally and not just on yourself. Impossible? It is, if you think that it is. I guess you can breathe some freedom on certain (maybe tiny) parts of your life, so it is not impossible, imho. In other words: the freedom of mind is the first step towards an utopic view of a standardized freedom, in my opinion. The question here is: how? And that's a bit harder to expose here. |ngenius.
