    Anyone ever read it? Its a book by Ayn Rand. I swear to god the first chapter is a statist's wet dream....it was scary to think how close we are to that kind of country.

    I've read Anthem.

    How are we "close" to "that kind of country"?

    So why do you think of yourself as a slave?

    I live in the same country, yet I don't think of myself as a slave. Freedom is largely a state of mind. If you want to believe you're a slave, no one can stop you.

    I don't...but that doesn't stop the elite from trying to make us slaves.

    I'm trying to think of how I was put in chains today, but I can't come up with anything. Maybe I'd understand how enslaved I was if I read more Rand. Now there's some incentive.
