Freedom is slavery is absurdity

To be free, you must find a purpose beyond yourself. Which is slavery to a purpose.

It will be championed (and reflected) by your friends, which provides a sense of joy.

This freedom that is not freedom, providing you with reflected joy, is absurd. Wallowing in purpose can create a disgusting bureaucrat or motivated altruist, or any manner of thing between.

Be cautious: see it, be wary of it, and yet still maintain a disposition beyond contradictory futility.
