Hello ATS!
I have been doing some more contemplating/meditation and I have presented myself with another question that I have no clue what to think of it.Anyways while I was reflecting I thought to myself a couple from ATS's own Hidden_Hand a looooooong time ago:
"If you want to enslave a man,allow him to believe he is already free"
and a different yet similiar quote from "Be Here Now" by Ram Dass:
"You don't seem to understand,YOU ARE IN PRISON,if you are to get out of prison the first thing you must realize is YOU ARE IN PRISON,if you think you are free,you cannot escape"

For a lot of people there is not much difference between prison and outside prison.

Get up, have breakfast.
Locked up.
Quick walk and work hard to keep fit before lunchtime.
Lunchtime eating slop.
Bit of activity in the way of sport for some drugs.
Back to the cell.
Watch boring MSM networks, reality TV, celeb gossip and sport
Back to cell

Outside prison.
Get up, have breakfast.
Get to work on time to make money.
Work butt off all morning.
Lunchtime (better food)
Back to office (cell)
Play some sport with some work collegues or boss for a payrise to buy something 'special'.
Dinner (better food again)
Watch boring MSM networks, reality TV, celeb gossip and sport
7o'clock kerfew due to high level of crime in neighbourhood

Not much difference is there ?
I guess a person's 'partner' is the only difference.

The banks have complete control thanks to endless debt.
If only the banksters were all locked up now.

Where would you like us to go with this? At the moment, I'm afraid that I'm going to be mundane and pedestrian, when I think your topic wants to soar.

We do things when there is a reason to. If you don't know that you're hungry, you don't eat because there is no need to. If you don't feel your finger burning, you don't pull it off the stove.

Another situation when nothing is done, is when you are sure that nothing can be done. No one enjoys banging their head on a stone wall. If those stone walls make your prison, you save your head the injury and don't try to bang your way out.

But I'd really appreciate some guidance on the direction you wanted this topic to take.
