We're ruled by pieces of paper. Whether that paper is in the form of money, a contractual agreement, a last will and testament, a birth certificate, or a marriage certificate, people will give up their hopes and dreams because they believe they must follow whatever said paper dictates. We have essentially been brainwashed to believe that we aren't able to govern ourselves unless we have a piece of paper stating who we are and where we belong.
