My point was, you can believe things but that doesn't make it so. If I am a bird in a cage, I can believe I am free, but am I really? No. Somebody put me in there, if I were free I'd be able to fly around like a bird naturally does...
How would you classify people who want equality and freedom for all... such as the founding fathers who broke away from the repressive British Empire to create a free republic.

My vindication is not an issue anymore I lost ego years ago,I just want solitude from the offensive masses,I am married but a loner, just a handful of friends I trust with many aquaintances. Honor is real and so is my America. If you saw me you would be nervous if I don't smile.I'm one of those wild eyed long hair types.A head banger who didn't bother to age...I didn't think I would have lived this long.
Another thing to consider is how do we know what freedom is or anything for that matter without context. To know what freedom is one must know what they need to be free from. Without context things would just "be" and there would be no labels to define what is what.

What is your opinions do you agree all people really want to be is Slaves or be the Enslavers?
How would you classify people who want equality and freedom for all... such as the founding fathers who broke away from the repressive British Empire to create a free republic. Or Lincoln, who fought to outlaw slavery. Using your framework, how would you classify such men who already wield great power yet fight for the freedom of those they rule over?edit on 9/3/2013 by ChaoticOrder because: (no reason given)
Therefore i sometimes will be in control but control to me is not a permanent thing its transitory.
