And really, how many adults are truly "free?" There's a reason the movie
"Office Space" was such a hit - it spoke to a lot of American adults'
experiences, working in a cubicle at a meaningless job. How many adults
have gone through traditional systems and learned that doing meaningless,
mind-numbing work is what's expected and never unlearn that lesson?
