Freedom

Sarah Palin rides a Harley for  “freedom.”

I consider what freedom means to me…

I’m free to buy things.
I’m free to go into debt.
I’m free to need a job until I die.
I’m free to be vulnerable to economic forces beyond my control.
I’m free to want cosmetic products, even surgery, to match commercial ideals.
I’m free to less than willingly participate in a hyper-efficient market economy consuming the natural world.
I’m free to be a slave or slave master.
