When freedom is relative
Freedom. When I look at these idols that are ours, I need to stop and have a thought for them. Let’s see what. Dogmas and group mentality seem to be a good opportunity to demonstrate how much people want their hands and feet to be tied. But are they aware of it, even in the slightest? Socrates’ Allegory of the Cave paints a beautiful picture of this and reminds us that this problem did not appear just recently.
People need leaders, for the simple reason that it is easier to be guided than to guide yourself. Imagine how horrible it would be to have to make your own decisions and have to potentially justify them. So we let ourselves be carried in a world where we leave our true judgment to others.
Our idols, when consumed to the extreme, become objects of our insatiable desire and transform, willingly, into circus animals in cage. I salute their sacrifice for our enjoyment and the fact that they completely give up their individual freedom reminds me of how much I care for mine. A picture game, an illusion, that’s all it is.
