When I was a young kid, I had a digital watch. It was not a fancy one, it just told time. I asked my dad how come other people have all these fancy
watches with games on them (going back 30+ years, they weren't so much games as they were silly digital animations that moved when you hit buttons)
and he told me:
The more complex the watch is, the more things to go wrong with it, and the harder it is to fix.
I consider life the exact same. If you fill your life with petty things and come to rely on them, then you consider freedom a gift, and not something
inherent to the fact you wake up each day.
When your entire world can come crashing down because of the actions of another, you have not realised that freedom is a gift, but that you've sold
your freedom for the life you live. You pay the price.
When the more complex your life, and more you put into it that can go wrong, the harder you will live.
If you have nothing except your freedom then you can not have that taken away from you no matter what. That is true freedom. And it is not governed by
the things you have in life, that you sold your freedom for.
