What does freedom mean to you?

American Dream or Nightmare?

We get up every morning, put on the clothes we buy for work, leave our homes and drive to work in cars we're still paying for -- so that we can pay for the clothes and the car and the big house that we leave vacant all day, so we can afford to live in it.... 

It's like the old anti-drug commercial. "I do cocaine, so I can work harder, so I can make more money, so I can buy more cocaine" he says as he runs frantically in tighter and tighter circles. 

Adam Baker's 20 minute TEDx Talk is spot on and worth listening to. Is your 'stuff' holding you back? Is it really worth the price we are paying for it? 

What does freedom mean to you?

"There are thousands and thousands of people out there
 living lives of quiet, screaming desperation 
who work long, hard hours, at jobs they hate, 
to enable them to buy things they don't need
 to impress people they don't like."
