If you are willing to exchange your freedom for a few beads, then you 
don't deserve freedom.

Remember, choices today will reap you rewards tomorrow.

In a strange way it's like the allegory in the Matrix trilogy - the jail 
is beautiful, comfortable and warm, freedom is harsh, unforgiving and cold.

But in the end, a jail is still a jail and a slave is still a slave.

This ultimately is the choice you must make - stand with the free and 
die trying or enjoy your jail and die a slave.


Note: Yes, it's a bit melodramatic on the surface, but I think we can 
all start to feel the undertow of a lot of political, social and 
philosophical movements once again under way globally.  I have this 
uneasy feeling that our choices around freedom just may have much more 
significant implications that we realize right now.

Apologies for bringing politics into essentially technological forum.
