Humanity has fought for different forms of freedom for thousands of years, but in the end we see that we do not have it. Man begins to realize that he was not born free and he will not die free. “Against your will you are born; against your will you live, and against your will you die.”
The concept of freedom is quite relative. I can go as if to the right or to the left, do what I am predisposed to at any given moment. But this is not freedom because I cannot imagine how trapped I am in the network of forces and control.
Each of us is influenced by our genes, society, upbringing, and the generation in which we were born. Thus, a person has only the illusion of freedom. Within the framework of this illusion, we exist and fight for it.
To give man the opportunity to be in this illusion, in general, is the concern of all sovereigns and rulers, how to indulge people so that they are satisfied, but actually are completely controlled. This is what remains for people and their leaders.
