in internet conversation with a pyramid seller

Sartre talked about 'free commitments' (which may sound oxymoronic) - it is a choice made at some point in your life to an ideology or set of ideologies which then becomes a fixed way of being / acting / speaking. Sartre himself made a free commitment to Communism, understandable given the context of Fascism at the time tho it blinded him to Communism's shortcomings.. i think i see a common thread in individuals i encounter beginning from square two (ideologies) rather than square one (freedom). however, i also concede that in general we have evolved enough to know and remember what the 'poisonous berries' are. yakshimash!
