And then ask yourself what it means to be free and if it is possible for you to be. Ask yourself if you’re free to express your ideas with no worries about the consequences, if you can act with no excessive control, if you can oppose the predominant ideas.
If it’s no, then ask yourself what you can do, someone has died for her freedom, someone has given up, someone has spread culture and has destroyed the exploiting and controlling system from inside, someone has simply escaped.
My worries are that if you escape you have to be sure that the land that welcomes you is more liberal than your motherland..
(To check out your country press and democracy freedom rank: http://www.worldaudit.org/press.htm, if you’re country is not in this list it means that it’s senseless speaking about freedom for it).
