There is only one goal. That is to be whole again.

There is only one goal. That is to be whole again. How human beings live and work determines whether they remain whole or are split. ...

Modern economics has been marketed to the masses under the guise of freedom. But following my self-interest is not freedom. It is following the basest of my instincts! I admit that I am selfish. I am perhaps the greediest person alive. 

But am I truly free when I am selfish and greedy? No, I feel like I live in a prison of my own making. I am not free.

Something inside me makes me want to be free. And sometimes I feel very deeply the following: 

Freedom consists in following the highest of my instincts. 

Do you think self-interest is the most we can hope from human beings? Is greed the most we can hope for? I do not think so. 

And if the most selfish and greedy person in the world (that I undoubtedly am) feels in his bones that he can be more than he is, is that not a sign that true freedom is possible?

The answer is, yes!

But we must give up on modern economics before true freedom can become a reality.
