krishnamurti free will law

As long as you remain within that field of the culture, of society, of greed, of envy, of achievement, you are not a free human being.
You may think you have free will, but you are just part of this monstrous society, a conditioned human being. – Krishnamurti

Re-familiarizing myself with the work of Rollo May
“”Freedom is the capacity to pause in the face of stimuli from many directions at once and, in this pause, to throw one’s weight toward this response rather than that one.””
from Maria‘s post
Everything can be taken from a man,” the great Austrian psychiatrist and Holocaust survivor Viktor Frankl wrote in his timeless treatise on the human search for meaning, “but one thing: the last of the human freedoms — to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.” A generation later, James Baldwin examined how we imprison ourselvesand asserted: “Freedom is not something that anybody can be given; freedom is something people take and people are as free as they want to be.”
i don’t know.. imagine a turtle..
These are discomfiting sentiments, for they annihilate the protective possibility for self-victimization and place the responsibility for freedom squarely on our own shoulders — a responsibility whose first demand is that we learn to want to be free.
i don’t know.. i think it’s more that they protect those of us not currently dying/starving/voluntary complianceing/et-al .. from feeling we’re part of a systemic change/pause/reset.. i think they perpetuate on hold ness..

On this Independence Day, Shikshaniketan educators and children raised the question ‘Do we really have freedom?’ highlighting several issues: female foeticide, child abuse, poverty and suppression of expression- all that stop us from being truly independent in today’s world. https://t.co/2a4G6hWZ0T (http://twitter.com/BarefootCollege/status/1162348288277979137?s=17)
