: How to be free

: "You don't have to reconstruct the social order; you don't have to overpower the villains; you don't have to re-educate the world; you don't need a miracle. All you have to do is to use your sovereign power of choice to release yourself from those who would keep you in bondage."

: That quotation disturbs all politicians, and all crusaders for change (ie change in others!). I found it an interesting, even challenging proposition so I though it might make an interesting thing to discuss in a political forum.

Why would this interest anyone at all apart from some big mad capitalist?

I mean what it's clearly saying is dont change a thing just swindle your way as a business and some day, by virtue of luck in the rat race, you can piss on everyone because you'll be their boss.

I dont think that's particularly inspiring, the fact that I hate the boss etc. means that I dont want to be one.
