The World Of Illusion

              The World Of Illusion 
Just Like a bird in a guilded cage we are all
supposed to be free ?  But  are we really 
free ? The answer is No !, in Australia we 
are compelled to vote, we are fined if 
we don't vote, as our governments make
laws that control our lifestyle, when life 
was created by God he deemed all of us 
were born equal, that being the case why 
do we need a leader to govern as we are 
all as good as each other, laws create 
problems in society, and corrupts our 
lifestyles. When society, tells us what we are 
permitted to do and even what we say and 
wear, is that freedom ?, the answer is No, 
we live in a society were we are forced to 
accept rules on our personal appearance, 
it was alright for women to wear skirts and 
men to wear long pants, and boys to wear 
short pants all in the name of tradition 
and this is dictating our lives, if we fail to 
comply we are discriminated by society and 
looked upon as anti socialists which in some 
extremes can lead to civil unrest and world wars, 
we are all prisoners of tradition and government 
laws, we do things to please everyone except 
ourselves and that is selfishness that needs to 
change as people need to wear and look as they 
wish. here are some examples these days women 
can wear pants and men even wear skirts, they 
are called kilts that Irish and Scottish soldiers 
would wear into battles. Makeup only woman 
wear allowed to wear, yet in very early times 
men would wear make up, back in the Egyptian 
dynasties. It was also the same in indian tribal 
customs only men wore war paint, but it has 
all changed. If a man wore lipstick in the street 
today he would be laughed at as being gay or 
a drag queen, yet circus clowns have done this 
in there work amusing children, even actors 
use it with no incriminations, so why can't 
men and women have a say in what they 
wear and how they dress and have nothing 
said about it, if we were truly free we could 
do all of this, but as long as discrimination 
rules society we will always be forced to obey 
tradition and follow the rules that suits a select 
few and not the majority of the world we live in. 
This explains my thesus that we are just like 
that bird in a guilded cage, we seek freedom 
but can never really be free. This is the order 
of our society today.
