Did you really need it at all? Free means not subject to constraints or obligations. We all profess to be free but actuality says something totally different. More and more we're constrained by our own definition.
There used to be a time when there was much more to appreciate in life, but any more appreciation comes at an expensive price. No matter where you go and what you're doing, there's a catch.
One would think our largest producers would be happy providing for us, but their happiness has been overcome by their ability to profit, at the expense of the very people they're dedicated to serving.
You say, I have the right to do anything -- but not everything is good for me. And even though I am allowed does not mean I become obsessed with what I enjoy. Paying massive amounts for what we need and enjoy.
We are a society who likes to use something and then throw it away. Can you imagine a society which drives its citizens away from free and useful? We've been burned so many times, we're very suspicious of anything free. As a matter of fact, free has evolved into dangerous, degrading and/or incriminating. We're to a point where we pay for what we want, suffer for what we need and employ protective measures to defend against intrusion.
WAste comes to mind because waste is a good indicator of how useful something really is. WAste accumulates and after so much accumulation it becomes a health hazard.
More constrained and subject to overwhelming obligations, why do we keep saying we're free. Constrained by our own demands, how much more of this can we take?
