In our current society, we have more choice than ever – but do we have true freedom? Many elements of our society seem more like a form of modern slavery.
Modern slavery might be a strong word, and I am not comparing our suffering to that of actual slaves. However, there are parallels. Understanding these can help us escape and have true freedom.
Much of the work that people have to do could be considered a form of modern slavery. Working long hours for a minimum wage is an exhausting and soul-destroying way of life. In addition, many people have to take additional jobs to make ends meet. Meanwhile, big corporations are raking in huge fortunes on the backs of their workers.
