Freedom only exists in the choice. When you don't have the choice you are not free.

The starting point to freedom is to begin questioning the cultural narrative you have been sold.

America has a unique type of slavery that looks like freedom.

Most people know nothing about freedom; only the facsimile of freedom into which they were inculcated.

Women do not need a knight in shining armor or a Prince Charming to come to their rescue.
