Sometimes the cage is constructed not by one's own thoughts, but the shared thoughts of others creating the bars with their words. The cage is the lie and society is trained to build the bars by repeating the lies as fact when in reality, the lies are one of the slowest ways to die.
Sometimes the cage is constructed not by society, but by one's thoughts alone. It's easy to escape the prison when you've caged yourself, but when you're taken away and beaten by societies horror of your savage free self, you are open to being beaten by the rocks and sticks thrown from the cells of those who do not see their own shackles.
Who is free when the free are oppressed and the caged consider themselves free?
