11. It Isn’t Any Different Than Being Free
On the outside, we construct for ourselves our own prisons, where societal obligations and restrictions form the walls and bars. We shackle ourselves to careers we care nothing about and people we care nothing for. The quest for more and more dictates each of our lives as we race for a destination we can never actually reach. On the outside, nothing is good enough, love isn’t real and no man is ever truly free.
