: : But anything else is an enforced automatism and we would never develop to the full of our free humanity and human dignity but we'd degrade to consciousless robots with instincts of a lower than animal level.
: xx ...than animals?
+++ Not better, not at all. Different with a different mission. But if we renounce any chance to higher development and fulfillment of our human mission and rely on our instincts than we fail and get willingly even below the level of animal development.

Maybe the rich are more free to a greater extent than the poor, but they aren't ultimately completely free b/c they are slaves to their greedy desires.
