"By whatever thing you are bound, by that the bond is broken." -- Hevajra Tantra
The above axiom applies across the entire field of human experience/endeavour, including the socio-political.
If you look to others for guidance and leadership you remain enslaved. Who is able to free another? LIBERATE YOURSELF, it's only an attitude away!
Everything you think you are is a LIE, yes, EVERYTHING! The complex of thought, including emotions and desires, that you regard as YOU has been superimposed onto your essential nature or inherent Being.
Put simply you are NOT what you 'THINK' -- you existed long before the language of thought and will continue long after language has been abandoned in favour of direct, unfettered communication.
All thought is based on language, words, images and abstractions. And what is language but a conglomeration of culture or the repository of cultural experience?
Freedom cannot be bestowed or achieved by that which enslaves. BUT language can be turned in on itself until it eventually FAILS due to its obvious finite LIMITATIONS -- it is a finite form of expression/representation and your inherent nature is INFINITE -- why would you identify with a mirage?
Truth is simplicity itself, nothing is simpler than recollecting who you REALLY are. You already posses that which you seek, so WHY seek?
The act of seeking veils that which you would find; to quote a Zen adage, "those who seek do not find" -- Christians unhappily verify that FACT!
There is nothing gained and nothing lost, you already have everything, yes, EVERYTHING! Does all-encompassing INFINITY lack anything?
You cannot be harmed, despoiled or polluted in any way unless you allow it, so why FEAR or be manipulated by fear? No man-made religion or GOD or weapon is able to prevail against INFINITY/You!
Realise your Self/TRUTH and come together as equals; build whatever you choose that would replace the nightmare that others have created for you.
If you tire of your miserable, fearful existence simply sit quietly and let THOUGHT go, just LET IT ALL GO until YOU emerge from your imposed prison, never to be enslaved again!
