loyalty to the country always, loyalty to the gov't when they deserve it.

i cant leave the country without permission
i cant fly anywhere with out being searched
i cant run around naked in the streets
"freedom is when bondage is understood..." Frankl
true freedom is in knowing your limitations, and in the understanding of your binds, you will understand the system, you will know, how to get what you want, how to work around it, and how to live.
Frankl survived WW2 in and out of concentration camps... maintaing the entire time, that because he has a choice... to live. or to die. a choice that was his... he was free.
does that make us free?
its too bad that not everybody gets that choice. to live... or to die.
its too bad that so many americans have died fighting for nothing these past years in iraq... that the death count is the highest the united states has seen since 'nam.
i guess freedom isn't free.
