Freedom: The Power, or Right to Act, Speak, or Think as One Wants Without Hindrance, or Restraint

Freedom can be defined. However, I am not sure humans can tolerate freedom can we accept a world where there is no rules?

You sons, and daughters go off to University, to get an education, maybe to become a doctor, a lawyer, an accountant; they want to earn money, get a job, buy a house, a car, and have 2.5 children.

What is missing in this picture of life?

Flash forward 30-40 years, and your sons, and daughters are ready to retire...

But, what then, why retire, why not? Time to retire, yet, they don't want to retire.

Why not retire? They are "Institutionalized."

Institutional Syndrome

Quote from Wikipedia
In clinical and abnormal psychology, institutionalization or institutional syndrome refers to deficits or disabilities in social and life skills, which develop after a person has spent a long period living in mental hospitals, prisons, or other remote institutions. In other words, individuals in institutions may be deprived (whether unintentionally or not) of independence and of responsibility, to the point that once they return to "outside life" they are often unable to manage many of its demands; it has also been argued that institutionalized individuals become psychologically more prone to mental health problems.

I am Andy Lee Graham, from some accidental quirk of luck, I was never domesticated, never trained, I have never felt the obligation to obey a person, an organization. Yet, that sounds rather chaotic.

People are angry, and they don't know why.

I often laugh at Bitcoin people, they think they are free... It is the opposite of freedom.


1. Normal USA money.

2. Bitcoin money.

3. The elusive third option.

To say, I just want to use some currency, don't really care; I want to buy things I need, and I want freedom from thinking about the story of Bitcoin, or normal money.

Freedom is often not taking sides when people are talking seriously, the Bitcoin people take sides, and give away their freedom...

University was a lot of fun, but it did not give me freedom, or teach me to think; I find this all quite humorous. Because everyone I know is proud of going to University, and working for a company. I just don't think they get it, they volunteer in mass to give away freedom.

"I don’t care how rich you are. I don’t care whether you’re a top Wall Street banker. If somebody has to tell you when to be at work, what to wear and how to behave, you’re not a free person. You’re not actually rich." - Naval Ravikant

Thank the good Gods, I have never been domesticated, institutionalized. - Andy Lee Graham
