The celebration of independence day is a celebration very important in many countries, as he commemorates the fact that there were people willing to pay a high price to win the freedom of their people. However, in this installment, not I will address why a people wants to have freedom, or why you want to secure freedom for the less fortunate among his compatriots, but the importance of recognizing that freedom is inescapable priced. Born to be free. West Brom can provide more clarity in the matter. It is inherent to the human being to be free. Although throughout history we have witnessed captivities, exiles and others, none of this has been able to get used to the idea of slavery. In our spirit (our mood, thought, inclination) have not been able to resign ourselves to the idea of living chained, be it by the strength of the iron, or the convenience of pseudo safety that can give us slavery.
Unfortunately, as our societies complejizaban, also forms of make slaves became more complex: the first is, to my understand, is ignorance. I don’t mean to be illiterate or lack of formal education, because we could have titles everywhere and remain ignorant of the great potential that sleeps in us. That potential has to do with our ability to be human, be free, live in a continuous search for personal perfection, which should not be confused with perfectionism. But the ignorance that can plunge us into mediocrity, in the complacency of conformism, turning us into slaves for fear to think, to think that we can reach further each time. The second form, in my opinion, is that of consumerism, but we must not radicalize what this means. It would be ridiculous to suggest that we must isolate us technology (computers, mobile phones, internet, etc.) because the make such a suggestion, we would be virtually denying the creative, inventive capacity, innovative that human beings have themselves; more, although things are not bad in themselves, we must be aware of the power that we give them to make they control our lives.
