Great speech about the state of the current "intrinsic" slavery. Does anyone know who the gentleman giving this speech is?
In order to generate some discussion, what do you guys think about the video? Are we in a state of slavery, as this man is telling us? Or.. are some
people always upset about their lives and blame the society for "enslaving" them and causing them their misfortune? Personally, it is difficult for me
to believe that I am a slave given that I was born and grew up in this society and have gradually been conditioned to accept what might very well be
slavery. Furthermore, the "slavery" that we are taught about in schools is more of physical concept than an intellectual and spiritual one, so again,
it is hard to accept the idea that I am a slave. Do you think that we "were born into bondage... Into a prison that [we] cannot taste or see or
touch... A prison for [our] mind." (as Morpheus had so eloquently put it in the Matrix film.)
What does it mean to be fully and irrefutably free anyway?
