We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
JP Sartre wrote about this, though his view was that freedom was something to be achieved internally - inside each of us - but most of us are slaves to something/someone because we don't know any better. There may be some truth to that, though I don't tend to agree.
I know in a corporate environment, I prefer to be left alone and do my job. If I'm not in management, then I prefer management to recognize the benefits of each of the employees - we're all different - and accommodate accordingly to get the most out of all. That's a rare event, as most managers like to push "collaboration" and define it as "everyone working together as a team". The problem is, as I once heard, "it's not enough to have everyone on the bus, you need the RIGHT PEOPLE on the bus". In other words, you're with us or you're against us. Which is almost never how this works.
Fair masters may be useful for certain people or at certain times. But they are hard to find.
I would only argue that the "sense of freedom" from not being responsible for one's action is not really freedom but slavery to those who make the decisions we don't want to be responsible for. I agree that it appeals to many people, including myself at times.
