Freedom

I spent last 45 years thinking that freedom was the respect towards others, do the right thing and keep consistency with the own values. But I was wrong.

I was not free, I just acted like a person who with a minimun of intelligence should do.

And even though the last measurement of my IQ has indicated that my level of intelligence is near 150, for all these years I have been stupid.

We know,  intelligence is the ability to solve new problems with old knowledges. So, for 45 years I have been an intelligent stupid.

What is freedom for you? Please think carefully  and don’t give the answer :” do what i like with no limits” .

In part it is correct, freedom in the past was the apparent ability to make choices free from certain kinds of constraints. But today,  this definition is still suitable? I do not think so.

I firmly believe that today Freedom is the ability to be happy and is an hard objective to reach,  for someone even impossible. Why? because we love technology. It is a blind love always more and more anchored inside our neurons. Is a drug that we can not do without.

And in this state of mind we do not notice that we are manipulated day by day, hours by hours by those images that pretend to show what can make us really happy, what we need and finally which product has the essence of happiness.

So it is normal that we believe that having a lot of money allows us to buy what we want and  to do what we like. In a word,  be happy.

I suppose that you agree that this equation has something wrong. The elements shown above are part of  the dimension of the  individuality concept  and not of those of freedom or happiness. But then is this the modern happiness? Be different, unique?

If yes, I turn off the phone as much as possible, I try to go back to using paper to communicate, I do less and less wild shopping, I turn off the TV or  I watch just videotaped programs, I do not eat at McDonalds anymore or drink a Coca Cola…..

Well, substantially I start to get my life. And just the thought makes me happy and certainly different.

And you?

Are you happy as am I?
