There is this concept of ‘wilderness’. When Moses took Jews out of the slavery, on the way to their own country, they had this transition period called ‘wilderness’.
This is the time when they were wandering and wondering what’s so cool in being free, because they felt they lived better lives with free food and less suffering back in Egypt.
I think when we care about our freedom, we loose a lot of opportunities. Among them - opportunities to socialize at centralized social networks, to be flattered there, opportunities to gain friends, opportunities to use web services to convert files or edit pictures, etc. And people wonder if they did not loose freedoms, instead of gaining them.
To me that is very similar to the transition period Jews had in a desert. So we are in the wilderness. We are wilderness wanderers in search of freedom.
