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..”

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.

About Young Contrarian

I'm Dhana, a native indonesian who currently reside in holland. I always consider myself as a natural born 'rebel' and highly skeptical free-thinker. 9/11 attack is the most defining tribulation and turning point that had extremely affected and had completely altered my frame of mind. Nowadays after i re-shaped my thought and strengthened my stance, it leads up to a handful of highly critical propositions toward imperialistic and genocidal forces that has burned this world up! My other foremost indulgences and pleasures are cinema, politics, science and blues music! those are my biggest pleasure in life! i also have few secret that have been stifled for so long : learning baseball, making a good career as a film director, producer and independent entreprenuer, Plus.. studying spanish and french language! I wish i could have a mastery in those field someday ;) ~ Best Regard from Holland~
