While slavery still exists today, it's completely illegal. However, no one is going to deny that mental slavery still exists in the world and people are enslaved by their own thoughts or ideas.
In the words of Marcus Garvey, popularized by Bob Marley: "Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery, none but ourselves can free our mind."
This week contains both 4/20 and Passover. The marijuana holiday protests the governmental restrictions on marijuana—encouraging people to ask for freedom. In the same notion, Passover celebrates the Jewish people's freedom from slavery.
Free your mind. End mental slavery. Happy holidays!
