Do We Really Have A Choice?
“…The economic dictatorship of the monopolies and the political dictatorship of the totalitarian state are the outgrowth of the same political objectives..”
~ Rudolf Rocker / Writer and Social Activist ~
Freedom. We all may agree that is the pre-condition for the state of a good life. If we want to begin a credo for the most righteous and just method for all mankind, it all must be founded on this tenet. Freedom. Once again, it’s essentially very abstract and relative philosophy. The question is : where can we find a true freedom? how can we bring a genuine freedom into being? what kind of freedom that would fit justly and equally into society? In this phrase alone, Rudolf Rocker – one of the founding-father for anarcho-syndicalism – excoriated the major forces on earth in establishing a systematic chaos under the cloak of freedom, although sometimes oppression can function without any pretext to safeguard freedom. Power system, no matter who control the lever, must always hinder the progress of freedom, socially and economically. No individual in this world, either they live under fear and threat from the powerful state or in the most open and free society, can determine the definition or grow the spirit for freedom -especially ultimate freedom-. Even when we think we have choice, virtually we just fall into a pitfall of fatalistic submission for cogs and machine.
