I did not say" I live in a Free country." I get tired of hearing this statement. It's, vague, confusing, meaningless and dishonest.
First of all - a " country " is a piece of land... aka Real Estate. Land ownership costs money. Also, "Land " does not determine the Freedom of those who reside there. Land itself has no opinions , rules or monetary costs.
PEOPLE do that! -" Rulers" AKA Governments- tax and enslave their subjects- giving them rules and regulations. Don't Blame" the land"! Government likes its " Good " citizens to SHUT UP, PAY and OBEY!
Land has no personal prejud
ices regarding behavior of its inhabitants.
Land lives by the laws of nature. That's it. No man made rules or biases. Land appears to "live and let live " I think.
We Individuals are about as " Free" as we want to be. Freedom is a state of mind- a personal belief/ attitude- that says " I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul." and I own myself. I take responsibility for my life- the good and the bad. I am a Grown-up.
The Government is also a belief or attitude of authority and responsibility resting outside of the individual . It is the belief that you have privileges bestowed by superiors who are necessary to control your behavior, supply your basic needs, and protect you from yourself. Totally condescending, wrong, illegitimate , wasteful, mean, disgusting and more in my opinion!!!
Do you believe that ancient dead people who were born long before you are entitled to set the rules you will follow and claim all the important stuff until the end of time? NOT ME!!!
This " idea" is the reason
so-called civilized humanity is the mess it is today, I think. Do not be mesmerized by other people who tell you they know the " truth" and the way and will give you three hots and a cot with wholesome entertainment thrown in- from the cradle to the grave . If you believe Government Loves you , you are in " la-La Land"- and will get what you deserve:
A " Free Lunch with food poisoning, a lumpy mattress and old black and white B rated movies " LOL!!
Back to the original topic of Freedom. Have FUN , DO your THING Honestly and Peacefully without Coercion. !
BE a SUPER SALESPERSON- not a BULLY!! IT'S FUN TO HAVE FRIENDS- NOT FOES!
