You built your prison and you hold the keys. Dont blame others for being your jailor if you refuse to open your cell door.
Again. Freedom does not exist and anyone that tells you different is a liar. Life is about choice and living with the consequences
Prison planet? Whose prisoners? Aliens' or of some privileged groupation?
I believe we live in a spiritual breeding ground.
So...if God were to reach his hand down to the world and offer you Heaven (a completely spiritual existence), how many would give up the physical existence? Would you give up sex, getting drunk now and then, laughing, the taste of a steak, etc. I'm not sure I could...even for a 100% spiritual existence in Heaven.
i think this post can be linked to the 'Ophelism' post by arpgme.

Even in the spirit realm there is a hierarchy so absolute freedom can't even be found there.
We are slaves to our consciousness. . .
We're spirits shackled into the confines of our physical bodies, which happen to be portable torture devices on top of that, due to the high level of pain it processes.
The low level of evolution of our species, and accompanying negative forces, are so grim, that the sayings "it's a school" and "it's a part of the whole" aren't much more than things to help us fall asleep at night.

How does the "story" go? We are made physical first so that we can learn to hate it before we become ethereal. That way we won't miss being physical or wonder what its like. Been there done that.
Everyone is going to grow old, get sick and die. Thats the way of things. By that time, we are ready for what comes next.
No jumping the gun...
