Ability to serve a purpose – totalitarian state

Two thoughts:

1. John X was not necessarily “put on earth” to fulfil a certain purpose, but he was born with the ability to fulfil a certain purpose – in the same way that a woman is born with the ability to get pregnant and give birth, something that is closely associated with a certain role that has to be fulfilled, or a purpose that has to be served.

2. A totalitarian state says: Surrender to the state, and the state will give you an identity with a strong nationalistic character, something bigger than yourself that you can identify with and where you will find a home where you will feel you belong, and many ways in which you can regularly confirm membership.

To be GIVEN the ability to serve a certain purpose, and the FREE WILL to do so or not.
