Freedom in the Form of a Prison
HERE! Have a prison, it comes preassembled and with everything, you could ever want. I'll show you where to put it, how to maintain it and how to believe it doesn't even exist. Sound good? Probably not.
Prisons are something I know about because one day, I realized I had built a substantial one. This awareness is one of the most crucial self-realizations in life.
