but States and their weapons, the rich and their lies, the poor and their misery. There is no way to act rightly, with a clear conscience, here. There is nothing you can do that profit does not enter into, and the fear of loss, and the wish for power. You cannot say good morning without knowing which of you is superior to the other or trying to prove it. You cannot act like a brother to other people, you must manipulate them, or command them, or obey them or trick them. You cannot touch another person, and yet they will not leave you alone. There is no freedom. I really hate living in a society where there is no responsibility and no freedom, no choice, only the false option of obedience to the law, or disobedience followed by punishment. This world is a damned prison."
