Describe your version of "Free".
Because, I feel pretty good about living my life.
I feel pretty good about the choices I am able to make, to the way I'm able to live, and raise my children the way I want.
But I live in the west. Canada. Sure, I give the government 30% of my cheque off the top, keep giving with the things I need to buy on top of my
initial contribution. But I can choose to grow my own food, not drive a vehicle, and not have certain things. I like having a loud gas guzzling hot
rod, I like having nice things. I enjoy my job, (that is where I'm lucky). I contribute to society in a positive way, raise my kids with good morals
and make them understand that they are lucky to have what they have. In return from my contributions, I get wicked medical care, dental care, smooth
roads to drive my hotrod, tax breaks on my home based business, decent schooling for my kids, garbage pick up, snow removal, flushing toilets, heat,
etc so on...and am ensured that if my family is in danger, there are multiple emergency services that are available and will show up within minutes to
Not a bad deal.
Even though we all know greed is the cause of War, it is also based on trying to force your belief's on someone who doesn't want them. Death isn't the
answer to freedom.
What if when you are dead...there is nothing else?
At least you are sure of life.
