I was watching the series called “outsiders”. It is about a client that live on the top of a mountain in a small town for centuries. They believe that they are “free" as they living there by their beliefs and traditions. They are not becoming numb with tvs, they are not becoming slave to money. They growing their fruits and vegetables. They are all relatives. They are all cousins. In case they need something that doesn't exist up there they flock to town shops and they take what they need without paying any money. Of course this is not the whole story. There are some other dramatic elements in the series. However the main point which I want to write about is freedom. Maybe we think that we are free as we living in our countries peacefully. We have constitutions, we have rights... But are we really free? Or some people want us to think like that? This was also a topic that we discussing currently in our literature lecture. “FREEDOM” .
Our lecturer said that we are not really free. We think that we are free because this is what ideologies are enforce to us. Actually we all already know that however we don't want to face with it. We refuse to believe that we are not free. We don't want to believe that some others leading us, telling us to what to do. You can call them governors, hegemony what ever. We don't want to see this because it is painful. It hurts to realize we are nothing more than little puppets. Our lecturer tells that however she is also still part of this little game. She still works hard to have some money. She still needs the government. However at least she knows that she is not free. There are some people even don't know this. The first step of being free is to knowing that you don't know. Realizing that the life you are in is a game and you are a puppet. Knowing that what you want from whom. Yes, it is a little complicated. But did you ever think that why we have money? Why we have to earn a piece of paper by working all day long? Why we have to pay for what is already exist in nature? People doesn't make the fruits or vegetables they are all in nature. This doesn't mean that we must riot to governments. This will not change anything. Because we cannot ignore that even we are slaves to the governments, they are the main reason for the order in our lives. Or maybe this is what they want us to believe. They want us to think that they are protecting us therefore we have to be their puppets. Even someone decided to start to live in a forest, growing his/her food, living his/her own life as he/she want; it won't take long. Because one day government will decide to cut destroy this forest and make new buildings. And there is nothing to do with it.
Yes, we are all from different nations, we all speaking different languages however do we need to be part of a country, a government. Can't be a country for people who wants to be free? A country that there is no money at all. People living their lives with their efforts. They growing their food. They making their houses. But what about laws? How there will be order in our lives? How we going to able to have peace? For answering these questions, first we have to find the answer of why there are conflicts? For me it is because of differences. Because of differences in people’ thoughts. Some people know that stealing from someone is bad, they cannot take whatever they want by force. However the others doesn't care what other people think. They only care about their needs. I have an idea to solve this problem also. An utopia. There won't be countries by nations or religions. There will be countries divided into pieces by people's thoughts. People in same idea, beliefs will live together as a group. This can be family, friends.. Doesn't matter. They will with people which they won't have problems. Those different groups will live as they want. There won't be any hegemonia to tell what they do, what they eat, how many years that they have to study. Because we won't need jobs anymore as there is no money at all. Maybe only the necessary ones, main ones like doctors, carpenters. We will have simple lives. There won't be any complexity, any worries about future. One lovely peaceful life! It is not possible however it feels good to think, imagine a world like this. We see that companies governing people in future inscience fiction series. Maybe this is also not possible however it is still interesting idea to think. Or at least to me ;)
