Why is life a torture?
It is a torture because you are not looking at it intelligently.
Why have you started believing in their propaganda?
Who told you that this is what makes life worth living – a house, a car, and money, and reputation, and all of this.
The society itself told you. The education told you that degrees make life worth living. That is what they told you and then they are the ones who control you by telling you that they will give you the degree, the respect, and the reputation, and you fall in the trap, and then you wonder why I am a slave?
See through the trap.
