    The society we presently live in is not a good society. It is not a very workable society from an intelligent point of view. It pretends to be a workable and acceptable society, and most people have been "trained" to "agree" (pretend) that it is an acceptable society even though they often grumble about and complain about some of the details, or blame themselves or other people for the ways it does not work. They tend to do this instead of seeing that society is fundamentally unfair and more, unworkable. This society pretends to be helpful to our work, to our education, to the relationships between us, and to our enjoyment of life. The basic purpose of this society, is to carry out a kind of robbery.

    I don't like to blame "society" for our ills, because it is only a concept, not a real person. I think what this movie illustrates is that individuals need to take responsibility for their lives, and that includes voting for people who will not enslave them as well as choosing creativity as a way to live.

    I agree the complete responsibilty for everything is the relaxed, unforced, unobligated inherent attitude of each human being, except for the societies that exist in the world at present divide people into an "owning class" and a " working class" with part of the woring class called a "middle class". These societies are not usually as openly cruel and vicious as the slave-owner-slave societies or the feudal socities, but they are still very bad. They treat people unfairly and they create much misery and unhappiness all over the world.
    Our thinking has often been distorted and limited by the illusion that we are living in a stable society.
