I remember reading Blake as a child coming across the metaphor of “mind forg’d manacles”.   I thought then, as I do now, isn’t that the very thing we all want, to free ourselves from those manacles? Christopher Hitchens said that those mind forged manacles are hardest to break, I agree. What confounds me is those who do not want to free themselves.

Why do you not want to be free from your chains?
