Who I want to be

I want to be able to be who I want to be.  I kind-of think that’s what it is to be free.  You might think “Doesn’t everybody?”  Apparently not.  Some people want to be what some deity (or someone else) wants them  to be.  How can that be right?

Maybe religious people think we’re incable of surviving a world where we all get what we want. I think such a place would teach us a few things about what we shouldn’t wish for, and what, exactly, is wrong with the way people think.

People would probably getting killed left and right in a place like that. We would need to learn to get along or we would be killed. We would need to learn how to deal with those causing random chaos, and then we could all be reasonably content.
