Freedom is so difficult in this day and age because of money.
Money in itself does not represent or imply slavery, but the manner of which we use money today certainly implies slavery.
It is as hard to be free today, as it is to reject money.
Everyone wants to buy things, all of these new creations out in the market today are in many cases awesome and excellent forms of entertainment or
state of the art tools etc.
How hard would it be for someone to reject those material possessions and even though they could enslave themselves to have all of these great things
easily, they still choose not to comply with the system?
I guess some sort of Biblical reference fits this best.
"Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God."
That's how easy it is to be free.
It's easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for people to reject their worldly possessions that are effectively the chains which
bind them mentally, spiritually, emotionally, and physically.
By the way, the eye of the needle in this reference is a small passageway inside a cities walls for use during the night when the large gates were
closed to prevent bandits etc from rushing in.
