The worst thing I’ve seen happen all too often over this last year is slavery.
I’ve come across far too many people whose lives are based entirely on the incomes of others thereby leaving them under their influence.
Even worse, some of these people don’t believe they are expected to work for their selves, thereby stripping them of some of their desires and freedoms and happiness. This strips individuals of the nature of individualism and self-determination.
It is an act that eventually becomes a form of evil/tyranny.
It is an ideological issue.
How ought individuals live? In a democratic, free country, we are told that living as individuals that finance themselves is the normal way and the path to happiness and justice, whereas other systems lead to subversion.
What are your takes? What extent of individual freedom is appropriate and just?
