We're all slaves to something/someone. The thing is, will you even make a choice? Most people are in denial, afraid to even think about it. Then you've got those who're chasing some elusive concept of "complete freedom." In the process, they become slaves to every new bit of freedom philosophy that comes along. "If only I do/have this, then I'll be free. If I resist here, then I'll be free." Problem is, they've become slaves to themselves, slaves to the quest for [pleasure|money|health|power|no strings|$(.*)^], and that's the harshest master around.
