To create more freedom, create more value.
The more value we create, the more we get our own needs met. Even if what we create is not directly what we need, we can exchange the value for something we need. After our needs and obligations are met, any excess value gives us even more options for growth. We can now rise to a higher level.
When we are able to produce enough value to get all our needs met (either personally or through a fair exchange in value), we are truly independent. Independence is a trait of the mature.
As individuals and as a nation, we should continue the daily struggle for independence.
