But after work you go home, hang out with your kids and do whatever the hell you want. In prison, even the way you spend your so-called free is dictated by someone else.

I agree. Anyone who works for a corporation, is a slave. And we are a commodity. To be bought and sold. We are a prositute for pennies. (Compared to the obscene profits of corporations.)
I'm sure some brain-washed, moron will disagree.
