Some say freedom comes from inside, some others need to shed their material belongings in order to find it…
Yesterday I followed a radio show where a philosopher and an entrepreneur were discussing freedom. The philosopher said that inside an institution/company freedom is suspended according to the contract between the employer and the employee, in the sense that the employee takes it upon himself to perform his task, but that the employee should have the liberty to do his job as he sees fit while the entrepreneur said that employees need guidance (naturally) and that the employer should be very careful as to how much freedom he gives to his employees.
So freedom can also be given to others. Or kept away from them.
At the whim of whom? How does a person get to ‘give’ freedom to others?
What kind of society are we building for our children? Why are so many who want out of it?
