We all are prisoners, caged in the prison of our jobs, prison of the money, families, or even ourselves. Some will persuade themselves to get used to those prisons, if successful, the prisons will not be prisons anymore, but their lives, the place where they’ll die pathetically, if not, they would probably think of committing suicide, or … a prison break.
The question that whether you should break youself out is NOT whether you’re innocent, cause no one has the right to judge you (no one understands you completely) except God himself, maybe one day he will show up and tell you to go to hell, but until then, we all are innocent, as a shameless robber, cold-blooded serial killer, twisted pedophile, or even a national traitor who killed the president’s bother.
We admire the ones who broke them out from the bottom of our hearts, cause we’re still caged. From Andy Dufresne to Michael Scofield, the story is the same, they all strongly believed that they were innocent, all strongly hoped to break themselves out, and most importantly, they were free in the ways we are not.
"You’re not your job. You’re not how much money you have in the bank. You’re not the car you drive. You’re not the contents of your wallet. You’re not your fucking khakis. You’re the all-singing, all-dancing crap of the world."
Tyler Durden had already showed us the way to free ourselves spiritually at first, then maybe we should get the rest done. If he was in prison, I would bet everything I have that he would break himself out or die trying.
Well, now it may lead to the Sisyphus dilemma again, that what if when we get out, it may turn out that we are just in another prison, bigger or smaller. But we just keep going, right?
