Im waiting for news that could change my life and its all totally out of my hands.
but in reality you are born as a slave.....at least if your try to live as you want you will find that your are compelled not to and are compelled to live as the authorities want you too.....you need ...documentation to be a legitimate human or to travel between lands....to get this documentation you must bow and scrape and touch your forelock to the man.....if you do not have a conventional lifestyle you may be denied said documents.....free land to live on will sort of be denied to you as a human animal, you will be sort of compelled to comply and fit into the extant society. As it will be made more than difficult for you to exist outside of it.
If you then give in and live in said society there is a cheeky presumption that you have 'signed up to the social contract' which is obviously nonsense but there you go..........it really depends which way you look at things as to whether you think your life is your own.....but bear in mind that others can bring to bear overwhelming physical compellment to your life and they WILL judge you whether you like it or not
or time....the world is too crowded to have everyone running around 'fully realising thmselves'...but the thing that gets your goat is when you give up your bit of expressing yourself some selfish anti social people think they can go around expressing themselves riding roughshod over your fellings/rights/stuff
in a past age some of my people would have been compelled or physically harmed for being like we are, this is the case for many other people too....thus compliance and conformity is not strictly voluntary in our society.....it has been demonstrated by the example of history what wikl happen to you if you do not conform or kow tow....of course not many are burnt to death nowadays....but punishment and disadvantage will still be dolled out to those who dont (or cant as easily) keep in step
I suppose it's a case of circumstance though - if you start trying to trace the root cause of things that lead to feelings such as that everything becomes a great deal murkier.
I don't think that another person is inhabiting my body/mind, no
I do think (obviously) that lots of factors beyond my direct control influence the choices that my body makes. Also depends on how you are defining the self.
no such thing
