Anti Wage-Slavery, Pro-Freedom Quotations Of The Week 1213-1215

Do you feel like you are living? I mean really living? That big fat life that you’re grabbing with both hands whilst shouting ‘hell yeah’ — running alongside every challenge that comes your way? Or do you feel like you’re drifting? Ambling along in a fug of the daily grind? Getting up each morning feeling like you are simply existing day-to-day?

If you are the former, then high fives my friend, you’re amongst those lucky people who have it all figured out, and if you don’t, then it’s likely that you’re just enjoying the ride anyway. If you are in the latter camp then you, like a helluva a lot of people out there, may not be living the life you feel you really should be. Am I right in thinking that this feels pretty damn shitty most days? Nothing seems to go as it should do, and life generally feels like an uphill struggle most of the time. I just want you to know before we go on, that you are not alone.

Let us meet the new era of abundance with self-chosen work and freedom to follow the dream of one's own heart.
Ivan Illich,
Call To Celebration

From the merged vantage point of somebodies who know they are equally nobodies, domination and servility are repellant, insupportable and, like slavery, destined to become one of the embarrassments of the human story.
Robert W. Fuller
