“Man is born free but everywhere he is in chains.”
– Jean Jacques-Rousseau
It’s a day of tribute here in the U.S. so before I forget…
Happy Independence (from foreign ownership to continue local ownership) America.
As declared by you,
‘We hold these truths to be self evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.’
-The Declaration of Independence of the United States of America, signed on this day, 1776
So all men are created equal and have inalienable rights granted by the ‘Creator’.. but let’s continue slavery. No problem.
300 years later and as far as I’m concerned we’re still enslaved. Everyone and all, black, white, yellow, transgender, gay, diseased, impoverished, fat…we’ve all got something that’s used to define and defeat us.
Freedom is a state of mind.
