Free from other people, from the daily grind of a busy city, from the stresses of having to deal with strangers. Some say that the truly independent man would live in a secluded cabin in the woods – free to come and go as he pleases.
I would say that this is the worst way to achieve the freedom we all crave.
True freedom is being relied on by other people. The more you are relied on by other people, the more indispensable you are, the more freedom you will have.
