Are we free? There is a question. The United States was founded on freedom. Its what we always fight for. (Though fighting rarely makes anyone free and causes more suffering)
We are supposed to have many a freedom. As long as we perscribe to the core values society has impossed on us. I have yet to meet anyone that absolutly loves all aspects of their job. I very much so enjoy my current job, but you know what, when I really think about it, I have other things I would rater be doing with my time. My time is the most precious thing of value to me and society dictates how I must spend it to be free.
Don't get me wrong, I love the ideals the Freedom represents. The question, for the age of acceptance, is
How can we all be more free?
Accepting ourselves is a first step, others the next. Then in time new core values will emerge. A truer representation of said Freedom.
