Freedom in context of Socioeconomic System

With this short post, I’m just trying to express my view on freedom in context of the present Socioeconomic System.

Freedom! What do you think about it? Are we really free? Do we live in a free world, in free society? I think, it depends on in which context we are looking for being free or defining freedom. One freedom lies within you, within us and other is the freedom of the world we live in, there are many other aspects of freedom or being free. Are we really living in a free world? In the context of this socioeconomic system, freedom is a false term, it’s a fallacy. Freedom! This word is widely used in our society to make us think that we are free, whereas in reality, we have to confine ourselves to look normal and sane as per our society, we have to act within defined set of rules and customs, we are only as free as far as our purchasing power and capability reaches, we are only as free as far as our government or authorities allow us to be. It’s a false terminology when we look it in the context of this socioeconomic system.

Actually, this topic is deeper and broader, there are too many aspects and we all have our own way to interpret how we look at the freedom. But again I would like to say that in this post I’m just talking about freedom in the context of this socioeconomic system. Ending up this post with this that what I believe and think is freedom in this socioeconomic system can’t be enforced but can be developed by eradicating things which are unnecessary obstacles and narrowing the horizons of freedom.¬† A person with a free mind, a person who overcome fear, a person with no hate, a person with empathy can feel freedom within but freedom is more than this. Is there any absolute freedom? I leave you with this question, you’re free to ponder on it ūüôā

P S: I’m aware and know freedom is deeper topic to dig, and I’m not writing all about it in this post. You’re welcomed to add up more!

If You Seek, You Will Find

Sometimes, the thing which looks beautiful can be deceiving. Sometimes, the path which looks perfect can be misleading. Sometimes, things aren’t what we or other assume about it. There is a great pride of traveling to a place where we haven’t been before, a place which is full of beauty, surprises and adventures but that doesn’t mean we have to travel all alone into the wild to make a life over there, and that’s too just because you don’t like the way society or the human’s world works. Yes! Society is crazy, but running away from it is not a solution. We don’t have to run away from it, we don’t have to live up in solitariness, in isolation; we don’t have to travel alone in the solitariness¬†or go die in middle of nowhere just to have a fulfilled life, or just to live up a life out of this sick and crazy world.¬† If you’re not happy where you’re, you will not be happy anywhere. My point is what has to change is our minds; the way we think. Open your mind by seeking the truth and you will find fulfilled life. If you seek, you will find. It’s your ride on the planet earth, and¬†only you’re in charge of it. So keep enjoying your ride, keep exploring¬†the world, keep traveling, or keeping doing the things you like to do not just as an escape from the world, but a part of your ride on this beautiful planet.

Just an Opinion!

Social attitudes and cultural output exist in a constant feedback loop. The more a society glorifies ignorance, the more its cultural output reflects the ignorance, and therfore¬†the more¬†it embrace the lies. The more cultural output glorifies ignorance, the more a society embrace it, and therefore more truth is burned up to feed the lies. The same applies with violence, consumerism, etc. The world has been in many loops, and will be in many till the people don’t¬†follow these decieving loops. Someone will have to break these loop, and certainly it will not be the side that makes billions from it.

One loop is the¬†loop which¬†exists between the media and the audience.In my opinion, journalists and artists are those who¬†strives to expose or express important truths regardless of popularity and economic remuneration, and¬†advertisers are those who tries to generate consensus, regardless of whether said consensus has anything to do with important issues, and based mostly on economic remuneration. In that sense, many of today’s news media outlets are really a hybrid that reflect the values of advertising while pretending to do journalism. So if society which doesn’t¬†show any value to the artists and journalists, or a society where advertisers thrive¬†while journalists and artists struggle,¬†is in a loop of deception. This kind of deception will always tries to keep the truth and beauty hidden from the people by feeding them up¬†with decorative lies.
