If acceptance is the coping mechanism for not having freedom then acceptance is not freedom, it is ultimately letting go of freedom - surrendering.
When you surrender/accept the only thing that is "free" is your responsibility - and even that isn't truly free because there can be negative
consequences for surrendering/accepting instead of taking action...
Acceptance is not breaking through anything, it is ALLOWING the limitations to exist, therefore you have a false sense of freedom when actuality there
are still limitations around you.
If you were walking in a forest and got lost, you are basically saying that giving up and staying in the forest is "Freedom" even though what you
REALLY want is to get out of the forest and return home, and it is possible, but if you "give up" and "accept" you'll just always be in the forest.
Acceptance kills individuality. It is saying "Yes", "No", "Maybe" in unique combinations from all others that makes us "us". To just accept and allow
anything to happen is to kill individuality and if you are killing individuality then you are anti-nature because you are a living through a human
body but not allowing it to be human, you just say yes to everything like the wind/waters, but the human is not the winds/waters, the human is

You basically just said freedom is a state of mind, and then you said even though Americans believe they are free in REALITY they are still slaves to
debt, materialism, and politics...
