That is a simple elementary equation for a STRAIGHT line, not a line in general. There are also equations for lines that do curve e.g. y=e^x is a curved line graph.

Really? put a free man in a cage and lock him away forever, is he still free?
User avatar #37 to #28 - neutralgray (11/04/2012) [-]
Yes but that seems a drastic difference than being out of the cage (especially since you specified locking him away forever) so that isn't really a "thin line."
User avatar #39 to #37 - neutralgray (11/04/2012) [-]
A better example would be subtle manipulation. In this one believes they're free while someone else pulls their strings, thus there is a "thin line" in that situation since the "slave" has no idea of his own "cage."

User avatar #35 to #28 - andnowducks (11/04/2012) [-]
Well to be honest, if he can move around the cage, then he's kind of free, just a point
User avatar #34 to #28 - invisiblepleasure (11/04/2012) [-]
No, but then I suppose he crossed the line.

brave new world or 1984 my friend. both express the thought of freedom, from the inhabitants, whilst from the outside clearly being in a state of slavery.
surely the difference between freedom and slavery is simply your perspective.
User avatar #74 - TheBarneyStinson (11/04/2012) [-]
Either I'm totally missing the point here, or this post isn't nearly as deep as it's trying to be. No, actually, the difference between freedom and slavery isn't arbitrary. The difference between freedom and oppression arguably could be, but eve oppression and outright slavery have drastic differences.

This is amazing art, but I can't understand any of it.

I don't think a thin line exists between freedom and slavery since those concepts of human, well, activity management are very far apart.

User avatar #8 - buriedstpatrick (11/04/2012) [-]
Metaphorically speaking, how is there a thin line between slavery and freedom?

This picture only shows a superficial example.
User avatar #13 - chrolt (11/04/2012) [-]
This is one of those things that sound really deep but doesn't really make a lot of sense when you think about it. What thin line is there between freedom and slavery?

And I'm not saying there isnt a thin line, you could argue for either one, I'm just saying painting birds with a line through them doesn't demonstrate it very well. When the **** do you tie birds together?

Am i completely missing the point here? Is the line supposed to represent shackles and chains? beacuse that doesn't make sense either.

Maybe they're impaled over a grill... No still deosn't make sense..
#14 to #13 - anon (11/04/2012) [-]
Meant to represent barbed wire, in other words detainment.

Alright I'll bite, what are the barbs then before you make them into barb wire?

User avatar #19 to #13 - jlyoung (11/04/2012) [-]
Without the line they look birds.Birds fly free through the sky.With the line it looks like barbed wire.Barbed wire tends to be used to block people on places like prisons.
Birds are free,barbed wire is slavery.
#32 to #19 - deathoftheparty (11/04/2012) [-]
Wow that's so deep man. Are you like a philosofizer or something?
User avatar #72 to #19 - chrolt (11/04/2012) [-]
I'm not sure if you're defending it or just interpreting it, but i must ask you: Since when does barbed wire symbolize slavery? When i think of slavery i think of shackles, ropes, maybe fences if you stretch it, but barb wire? That's used for war mostly.

I'll buy that birds represent freedom, but how does putting a line through birds make barb wire? Do they use our freedom to make us slaves by putting lines through us? Or does the line itself represent something else? And in that case what?

I know artistic freedom and all that, and they kinda look alike, but that is quite far fetched.

The symbols in this are just to far removed from each other, and from what the description says it's supposed to symbolize.

But that's just my opinion anyway.

electrical low current wires are better, doesn't hurt the animals that bad, just a little shock and they back away. a barbed wire can get stuck and hurt then pretty bad.
User avatar #105 - thebritishguy (11/04/2012) [-]
I think freedom is a state of mind, when we are children we are most free because we have no limits, we can wear and do what we want without worrying what other people think, we live create and try without worrying about failure, but when we grow up we learn to follow the crowd and adapt to them

Freedom and slavery aren't that far apart. You think receiving money for work doesn't make you a slave? Why is it estabilished that you have to work in order to have things? You are the proletariat. That word comes from Ancient Rome and it one of the names they called slaves by.
Hey, and what about that sudden urge to eat a BigMac after you watch a McDonald's ad?
Marijuana doesn't harm anyone, but it's still illegal to smoke, even own it. Just a few examples. You're not that free. Can you fly? No. Evolution didn't give you wings. So you're not really free.
User avatar #52 to #51 - fyaq (11/04/2012) [-]
yes you are a slave because the government slaps you on the wrist for smoking weed.

you have it so hard.
User avatar #56 to #51 - djbagboy (11/04/2012) [-]
You're an idiot.
User avatar #57 to #51 - anonymoose ONLINE (11/04/2012) [-]
"You think receiving money for work doesn't make you a slave?"

No, no it doesn't. Slaves generally aren't paid other than food.
User avatar #112 to #57 - galacticboner (11/04/2012) [-]
Food and money aren't different if they're both salaries. In Ancient Greece, people cared for slaves more than some companies care for their employees. And money is just a metal or a paper, and it runs your life. Yay, freedom.
User avatar #114 to #112 - anonymoose ONLINE (11/04/2012) [-]
Money allows you to chose what you spend money on. Food doesn't. One is a slave salary, one is a free mans salary.
User avatar #59 to #51 - Silver Quantum (11/04/2012) [-]
damn your definition of slavery is way off. you have to work in order to get things because those things are made by other people just like you. what do you think would happen if no one works? and not everyone gets a sudden urge to eat a burger or buy something as soon as they see it on tv. that statement is just retarded. and why do you need to be able to fly in order to be called free? what if i have wings but i don't wanna fly? i'm a voluntary slave? wait, that doesn't seem to make much sense
User avatar #113 to #59 - galacticboner (11/04/2012) [-]
I'm saying you're not free because you're not omnipotent and omniscient. There is no absolute freedom (and by absolute freedom I don't mean raping and looting and etc, that dwells in moral and that's another story)
User avatar #64 to #51 - pukingrainbows (11/04/2012) [-]
1. Yes, receiving money for the work you VOLUNTARILY do makes you a free man.
2. You don't have to work to have things. You have to work to get things from other people who worked to get those things.
3. You are a faggot. That word comes from Germanic influence and it's one of the names we call idiots by.
4. That sudden urge to eat a big mac after seeing a big mac ad is hunger. You can eat anywhere you want. It's not like they're forcing you to eat there by putting up signs that say, "Hey, you're hungry? We sell food!"
5. Weed is illegal because the majority of people don't want it legalized, or don't care enough to fight it.
6. Something not being physically possible doesn't mean we're enslaved. It would be slavery if someone started shooting anyone who tried to make a plane or helicopter to achieve something our puny meatbag bodies cannot do.
7. Absolute freedom cannot, and probably should not, exist. That's called chaos. Obviously we don't have the freedom to do a lot of things, because those things infringe upon the freedom of others to not get shot, robbed, raped etc.

You are almost too stupid to breathe.
User avatar #111 to #64 - galacticboner (11/04/2012) [-]
You're so shallow not even an ant would drown in you if you were a puddle.
You didn't understand one bit of what I tried to say and you even called me "faggot". That's a nice argument, the insult, it takes you so far in life, doesn't it?

Freedom is the absence of publicly enforced government or violently enforced political authority, the lack of coherciveness. Freedom is sharing. Freedom is having the power to do so and not doing it. Freedom is respecting the person next to you.

But why do I even care, this is FunnyJunk, where a pun makes frontpage and the average IQ is just above 100.
User avatar #117 to #116 - pukingrainbows (11/04/2012) [-]
Also, average IQ is supposed to be just above 100. It's scaled such that average is always 100.
#70 to #64 - anon (11/04/2012) [-]
actually the majority of americans support the legalization of marijuana, but besides form that your comment is great.
User avatar #71 to #70 - pukingrainbows (11/04/2012) [-]
Yea, what I was trying to say is that they either don't want it legalized or they wouldn't mind if it was and are cool with it, but really don't have a strong enough opinion to get up and actually get it legalized.
User avatar #55 to #51 - Ruspanic (11/04/2012) [-]
"Why is it established that you have to work in order to have things?"
You ******* serious, bro?
Because you aren't entitled to other people's **** . If you want something from them you will probably have to give them something in return, unless they're super nice.
Freedom doesn't have to be absolute. Just because you can't rape and kill people on a whim doesn't mean you are a slave. Not being absolutely free doesn't make you a slave.
