Freedom or Slavery: Which Will It Be?

As the Fourth of July approaches and social media is once again bombarded with falsely patriotic notions, I feel the need to ask: America, what do you know about Freedom? Are you truly free? With the stipulation that you are not inflicting pain upon another human being, are you free to live as you so please? No? That’s what I thought.

So, now I ask you this, at what point did slavery become perfectly acceptable for the whole of society? Or any part of society for that matter? Certainly our chains may not be visible, however, one should have no doubt that they are ever present in this world of modern slave masters.
