Yes, the question would have been rhetorical and no I dont mean Im thinking of taking up communism or nihilism instead of the freedomquest.
But seriously. You know from experience that being a freedomista often brings you grief. You get the sorrow of watching your country go to hell. The agony of knowing your children will have it worse than you do. You have to put up with the sneers or uncomprehending stares of people who dont want to hear perfectly sensible ideas. You hear media morons who know nothing about economics dismiss real money as weird. You watch the Bill of Rights crumble to dust, day by day. You know that the policeman is not your friend. That public servants are cruel masters. You know so much that it hurts.
Your neighbors, who fit in better than you, dont know or dont care. And theyre happy.
So why the hell would anybody want to be free? And by that I dont mean, Why would anybody rather be free than live in a Soviet gulag? Or, Why would anybody rather be free than to be tied up and waterboarded by a neocon puppet? Thats obvious.
