Something's been bothering me lately.
Why is it that we are all told that this is a free country and that we are all born free with inalienable rights, when in reality, people are always
trying to control us and make us conform and become slaves? From the moment we are born, someone is always trying to constantly CONTROL us in some
shape or form, and pressure us to CONFORM, whether it be parents, schools, governments, organizations and institutions, corporations we work for,
spouses and family, society, etc. using guilt, condemnation and deprivation if we don't comply?
From the moment of birth, there is ALWAYS MASSIVE pressure on us to behave a certain way, follow strict rules and routines, conform to society and
your environment, think within a certain box, and be slaves to others in some shape or form. This is true in every stage of life and wherever you go.
You can't do what you want to do most of the time are are often forced to do things you don't want. And you are told WHAT to think and believe too,
of course (e.g America is free, other countries are not, people are born to be workaholics, you are a loser if you don't have a wage slave job,
dissenters are all losers, etc).
And if we don't comply then we face disciplinary measures, are put on guilt trips, and told that there is "something wrong" with us. The pressure
to conform to something at every stage of your life is constant and neverending.
When you are born, you are under the total control, care and supervision of your parents. Ok that's necessary, since infants are not autonomous and
need to be cared for. But once you enter school, a lifetime of slavery and conformity begin. You are forced to go to school and given no choice in
it, where you have to do everything the teacher says, study, do homework, take notes, read stuff assigned, etc. Then when you get home, you are under
the constant control of your parents and their strict rules that you have to conform to. When you get to college, you are probably the most free you
will ever be, for you don't have to work full time yet, and you can choose your classes or just not go to them at all if you don't want.
(I never understood why so many people in college were in a rush to get out so they can start working, making money and become wage slaves to
corporations, rather than just enjoy life, it was like they wanted to be slaves, ick).
Then after college you are forced to enter the world of work, which is basically a private dictatorship where you are a slave 8 or 9 or more hours per
day, living under total conformity to your company and under pressure to perform well. It also ties you to one place geographically for the long term,
even if you hate where you live. But you have to do this in order to make a living and pay your bills. If you don't, you'll be seen by society and
your peers as a loser and degenerate bum, and also you are conditioned by society to feel incomplete, lacking and depressed without a job.
If you just stayed home with your parents and don't work, then you are seen as a total loser by society and your peers.
So again, you can't do whatever you want. There is social pressure to live up to a certain standard and lifestyle, and condemnation if you don't
live up to it. If you don't conform to all this, you are told adamantly, "There's something WRONG with you!"
What's really sick is that we are basically conditioned to WANT to become wage slaves and live lives of conformity, obedience and slavery. Somehow we
are duped into attaching our personal self-esteem, self-worth and pride to this system. And most people conform this. Few dare challenge it, lest
they risk condemnation from their peers, family and society.
