    But we sure as fuck don't have it.

    We're paying for something, but it sure as fuck isn't freedom.

    What would you do
    If you were asked to give up your dreams for freedom?
    What would you do
    If asked to make the ultimate sacrifice?

    Would you think about all them people
    Who gave up everything they had?
    Would you think about all them War Vets
    And would you start to feel bad?

    Freedom isn't free
    It costs folks like you and me
    And if we don't all chip in
    We'll never pay that bill
    Freedom isn't free
    No, there's a hefty fuckin' fee.
    And if you don't throw in your buck 'o five
    Who will?

    What would you do
    If someone told you to fight for freedom?
    Would you answer the call
    Or run away like a little ?
    'Cause the only reason that you're here
    Is 'cause folks died for you in the past
    So maybe now it's your turn
    To die kicking some ass

    Freedom isn't free
    It costs folks like you and me
    And if we don't all chip in
    We'll never pay that bill
    Freedom isn't free
    Now there's a hefty fuckin' fee
    And if you don't throw in your buck 'o five
    Who will?

    You don't throw in your buck 'o five. Who will?
    Oooh buck 'o five
    Freedom costs a buck 'o five

    and, we are unwilling to pay that price, having nothing to lose is not how americans want to live.

    We never really were free- it's just that life held fewer distractions to sway people from keeping an eye on the elite's annexing and appropriating things that had widely been thought of as basic- like home ownership. Over the past couple decades we've collectively been asleep at the wheel- and the price for that has gotten much, much steeper over the past year or so. True freedom is indeed at hand; we just need to be shaken loose from the things that constrain us- like our unhappy marriages to jobs and the illusion that our incomes are avenues to happy living. This illusion is a mirage calculated to keep us focused on an elusive prize that in reality does not exist.

    We've allowed a value system that prized character and community to be eroded and replaced by an each man for himself game of cut throat that has each combatant become more concerned about the superficial accumulation of gadgets and the illusion of being well to do... it makes moving about not only unnecessary but inconvenient with all manner of previously outside good and service a matter of home delivery. This culture of greed grooms its subjects to willingly isolate themselves by offering them all manner of what they are instructed to want- effectively cutting them off from one another. Contact with neighbors becomes almost traumatic and concern for them is nonexistent.

    United, we present a potentially formidable political force that those who claim to represent us would have to take seriously, but as isolated individuals without operating alliances and without a collective that can act as an advocate for our interests we are left to the mercy of soulless market forces that treat us mass-agricultural collective- with the desired crop being the green pieces of paper that stuff our wallets. We have abdicated our collective voice in the balance of power; rules and cultural norms have been rewritten to make it difficult and expensive to restore- and the act of trying cause for ostracism. We've become so divided that we're programmed into believing that the interests of our neighbors pose a direct conflict with our own.

    If you forced people to define their terms (instead of allowing them to become loose symbolic targets of emotional attachment and convenience) you would find that "freedom" is very hard to define: and probably synonymous with chaos.

    a state in which one is governed by self, and a basic moral code, that, though not common to all men, could be spread to all men.

    not hard for me, all you have to watch out for are sociopaths.

    it is a subtle order, but, an absolute one (malum in se)

    Ugh. Women really have no fucking taste.

    Edit: That's not a typo. That's owed to the fact english is my second language:"Como ele se parece?"
