A very thoughtful piece about corporate control. Thank you. One caveat I have is that our ancestors also lived lives that were famously “nasty, brutish and short.” What is different is that we tend to live twice as long, and that we have much more illusions of freedom than they did. Finding true freedom is what you are telling your reader to do. But to be able to do what you are interested in, do follow your passion etc., requires a society that is shaped around that goal, instead of one obsessed with moneymaking, worshipping the blind god of the market.
