In this second episode, I will talk about what is the nature of the world that we live in.
Man is born free; and everywhere he is in chains. One thinks himself the master of others, and still remains a greater slave than theyJean Jacques Rousseau
I will explain that, while you may think that you are free, most of your life is controlled by people and by forces over which you have no control. I make the comparison to your childhood at school where the school and the teacher sets all the rules and the rewards.
I show how your life as a child at school is actually almost identical to your life in the modern workplace where where you work, when you work, what you do and how you are rewarded are all controlled by others. Where everything you value might be taken away arbitrarily.Where what you thought was security is not. Where what you thought was freedom was a form of slavery.
This is where the pain comes as you make the Jump. For you wake up to know this to be the real world.
This realization demands that you find another way of living where you have control. Where you are truly free.
At the end of this episode, I will expand on the key elements of your new free life. These are to do or offer things that are of true value to others in a direct way. This is the new contract. Where also the goal is not to maximize your earnings but to minimize your expenses.
Here is where freedom lives.
