True freedom doesn’t exist in a civilized world. Yet we covet the concept of freedom like children covet ice cream. We are a species of delusion. Reality is far too complex for our puny human minds to comprehend, so we shape it to be tolerable. But man, is the idea of total freedom exhilarating. It is […]Read more "Freedom"
Sometimes I feel like the world is a broken record. It never seems to change. The patterns persist, and I spend far too much time caught up in the net.
