What a pity. It seems you cannot get past your inflated ego and seem determined to argue rather than discuss.
Here is something else you cannot control. Bye.
Oh dear, that old 'ego' chestnut again. It's amazing how often that gets wheeled out here on ATS but is mildly amusing as it indicates a failure to
stick to the issues at hand.
If it is egotistical to assert that I am in control of much of my own destiny through my life choices and perseverance then I'm happy to accept the
charge. If it is egotistical to assert that the average UK citizen is more able than the majority of people in the world to achieve their dreams then
again, guilty as charged.
No-one is totally free from 'control' by another in any society, but in the UK we have some of the greatest opportunities to achieve almost anything
through our own hard work and initiative.
If you wish to consider yourself a slave in this society then that is your choice, I consider myself relatively free and in control of everything I
have achieved so far in life. I am slave only to my own choices.
I offer my sincere pity towards your personal perception of slavery in the UK, I'm pretty sure many millions of people from hell hole countries
around the world would love to live in your definition of such enslavement.
Good day and enjoy the rest of your weekend in slavery
