Let me inside your mind.

Imagine having the power to enter someones thoughts and essentially control their actions. You can literally change everything and have someone do your entire will, sort of like a complex video game. In religion demons and heavenly spirits have this power to take over your body and control you. Realistically this is being done by the authority figure in your life. Not so much a parent opposed to your government and law enforcement. You are being told what you can and can not do. They come up with what defines a crime and how to deal with the offender. In another way you are controlled is through labor. Massive companies employ many people and these companies also have their ways of influencing politicians to put you in a powerless position. You work to pay for bills and other expenses which all goes back into the wallets of the people paying you. It's a form of slavery that we can't avoid or change no matter what. It then is the responsibility of the person to take control of what is actually theirs and break to circle of being a wage slave. We need a revolution.

  1. I would suggest that the difference, in my opinion, is that slavery in it's usual form comes as a result of the desire to oppress and control, whereas in this form it's byproduct. I guess plenty of people would argue that I've just been fooled into thinking that though, and that's an argument I'm not willing to have.

    On a different note though, can't people who feel trapped in this way (as I often do, so I empathise) just... stop? Like, go off and live in a tent somewhere or something? I fully plan on doing so.

  2. Inside Journalism makes a good point, there are people who get out of this, and go live on communes and what not, where everyone shares everything. One problem is that the people who were "oppressed" often work their way up, and become the oppressors themselves, and every politician who says he'll break the cycle, gets trapped in it.

  3. As an individual you can break free of the cycle, but your options are still partially limited. The large companies will step in if you get too big. If you keep a modest lifestyle you are free to do as you want, but if you step into the world of luxury you will get hit with "fees" for everything.
    Unless they want you around their world they will "charge you out".
    But, if a simple life is all you want than you will be left alone to have it.

  5. Personally I try not to rely on the big corperations too much, i've learned how to prepare a lot of foods myself and even make my own supplements. Think everyone should also learn basic survival skills to make you able to be self sufficient, its a rewarding experience being able to head out and fend for yourself with your homemade tools etc.

  6. It is a way of slavery, sadly there is nothing you can do about it. If you happen to have different ideas, society itself will exclude you. That's how it works wether we like it or not :(

  7. I would like a revolution in the US, I don't think our system of government works.

    I want a completely clean slate, no amendments or any of that crap

  11. Most of us with an IQ over 130 (15 spread) already know that there's no such thing as freedom. Deal with it.
