We decided that free could mean many things.
Without charge. Not for sale, given away.
But some people were missing the point. The question was "What is free?"
A coffee you earned by buying 10 coffees and getting stamps on your collector card was not free! you didn't "pay" for it but it took comitment, loyalty and other pruchases by the deadline on the card, you worked for that free coffee!!!!
The free society implies that we should be free to do as we choose, but this again is in a framework, decided by others not us, we have to do things by time scheduals decided by others, work, tax returns, pay licences etc. we have to work to pay for the services we may or may not use, whether we want to or not. There is no choice. Then there is the one that will really bake your noodle........ Even when we are required to make a choice, there is no choice, or if there is then we are compelled by social programming to make the choice that the people who gave us the choice wanted us to choose.
In a true free society, we would have the choice to do or not do whatever we chose to do. In the interests of survival that would mean working together for the common benifit of all. We would'nt even need money, as those who did not comply with the day to day running of the village and did not contribute would not be able to survive unless there was some charitable giving, by choice. The people that did work would have the choice of what they wanted for food, building materials etc. By taking responsability for sustainable growth and resonponsable living individually, as a collective the same is also true.
The thing is, to be truly free of the political, financial and mind controlling, corrupt elite. We would have to work hard. We would have to commit to each other every day to ensure the survival of our selves and our communities. And as individuals many people are not capable of that emotionally, physically and spiritually. As a society we are too sick, to lazy and to reliant on the charity given by the elitists.
Freedom is hard work, thats why that coffee was so easy to get!!!

Not everyone is a mindless psycopathic elitist. Just the ones at the top.
