Treasure Island

(196? -)

Free Will Isn't Freedom


the best one god
ever got over on
the human race
is when he convinced
them that free will was
freedom

for free will is nothing
more than having to make
decisions about yourself
all the time

and any imposed labor
from which there is no
escape is slavery

oh my poor
innocent children

have you not
realized yet
that god
is a liar

and that is the only way
that he can convince you
to play along in this terrible
game of his
call living
