I've always been curious by the exact definition of the term "freedom". Everyone always sings about it in the west... "I just want to be freeeeeee!" Even as a kid I always wondered what it actually meant, I felt pretty happy as a kid, but perhaps I was missing something? Where there people more free than me?|
Now as an adult, I think I've worked out exactly what freedom is. Basically, it's not being under the control of someone. So how do achieve not being under control of someone? By either working for yourself or having enough money that you can be financially independant. That is freedom. Millions of people in the west shout and scream about freedom, but these are milions of people (including myself) that are all working sh.itkicking jobs for some a.sshole boss, are they free? No, they aren't! Yes, as a worker they probably have more rights and freedoms than an authoritarian controlled country, but at the end of the day they are no more free than these people.
If you're a millionaire, what does it matter if you live in CHina or in the west or anywhere? You have freedom to do what you want! People in CHina who have started a successful business, become a famous artist, singer, sportsperson, they are as free as anyone else in the world who has "made it!"
